Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. --Proverbs 4:7
God has given each believer the task to positively influence others for Christ. And this includes having a strong spiritual influence in the home as well…particularly from dads. But whether you’re a father or not, this word is for you!
You know, my parents’ and grandparents’ dedication to Christ still has a tremendous influence on my life today. They have given me such a rich spiritual inheritance.
If you’re a parent, you need to know — or be reminded — that your children are depending on you to lead them in the right direction. And if you’ve got a friend who’s heading in the wrong direction, they need you to guide them to forgiveness and truth in Christ.
I want to ask you today, are you passing on a godly influence to others? Are you leaving behind stepping stones…or stumbling blocks… to those who are looking to you for guidance?
YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE DEPENDING ON YOU TO LEAD THEM IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
