The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him. Proverbs 20:7
Our lives are more than just about us, when we walk with integrity so do our children. As an old saying goes “Many people wont read the Bible but they will read us” We need to be a walking example, not only for our children, but for everyone we meet. People will complain about what their children are doing wrong, but have they looked at their own lives? Are you walking with integrity? Are you walking with Jesus? Are you a good example for your children or family?
Jesus said “To Deny ourselves, carry our cross, and follow him” (Matthew 16:24) Notice the Christian walk is not about self absorption, its actually about self denial. Its about sacrificing the pleasures of this world that lead to sin, to walk with integrity with The Lord. This is why to many the gospel message is not pleasing. Many want to go to Heaven, but not many want to change or give up anything.
The gospel message is all about change, repentance, and transformation. But how do we walk in integrity? How do we change or transform? This can only be done with the Holy Spirit living inside of you. You can only receive the Holy Spirit by coming to Christ! You need to repent and come to Jesus!
Before you make hasty decisions, think about your family, think about your children. Because all your actions effect them in the long run. Walk with integrity and your family will be blessed, walk with Jesus and you’ll become saved Amen!
