“So while these nations feared the LORD, they also served their idols; their children likewise and their grandchildren, as their fathers did, so they do to this day.” (2 Kings 17:41)
It isn’t enough for a nation to have Jehovah be one of their gods. He must be their only God. Compromise comes in many forms… but just like Israel’s children, our children will notice when we are partial in our commitment to God.
Our children watch us when times are difficult and they see who we lean on in times of trial. Our children watch us when we enjoy times of prosperity and ease and they see how we spend our excess and what we do with our blessings.
And what we do if those times – they go and do likewise… because the faith we speak is translated to them through the faith they see.
Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
