When we model sin before our seed, it grows….

What our children see in us, hear from us, and what we model before them can either produce the same kind of fruit or an offspring thereof. Our children are sponges, and they’re impressionable. They see, understand, and mimic more than we realize. What we say and do before our kids is like what a farmer does with seeds to the soil: We plant our actions into their hearts and minds…

The fruit or offspring of sin is sin:

If we lie, we can beget liars…

If we cheat, we can beget cheaters…

If we steal, we can beget thieves…

If we’re sexually immoral, we can beget kids who may be sexually immoral…

If we raise hell before our children, we can beget hell raisers…

If we’re disrespectful, we can beget disrespectful children…

What we say, do and model before our children, our children can become, and they also can become worse….

Proverbs 22:6 is still in full effect..Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it….

What our children see in us, hear from us, and what we model before them, TRAINS and SHAPES them in one way, shape form or fashion. “Do what I say and not what I do” doesn’t work and never has. As a matter of fact, this type “PARENTOLOGY” has a lot to do with why we have two lost generations today.

Beloved, there is hope, and this hope is in Jesus Christ alone, and it comes through the soil of repentance.

“For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death………………2 Corinthians 7:10

While I was talking to someone today, the Lord dropped a very powerful and profound word into my heart.

Repentant parents produce repentant children…

Parents who walk in and teach their children about the righteousness of God, produce children who walk in the righteousness of God….

Beloved, this is what the word teaches us. Beloved, this is what Proverbs 22:6 means: Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it…

What we must do as parents, guardians, and teachers, is BELIEVE the Word of God, and walk therein. We can’t keep listening to the lies of satan, and we can’t just throw our hands up in the air and give up. NO, rather than throwing our hands up, we must fall down on our knees of repentance. We must examine OUR lives, and REALLY be honest with ourselves about where we stand and walk with God…

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it…Isaiah 55:10-11
