You know, when we go our own way, and choose to sin, we are demonstrating a distrust in God our children will notice and often emulate.
It can be generational.
As I open to Genesis 26, Isaac and Rebekah have the twins and there is a famine in the land.
Isaac lies to King Abimelech that the beautiful and desirable Rebekah is his sister out of fear (just like Abraham had done with Sarah).
What is with these guys?!
We could spend days talking about generational sin, but let’s just understand this -what we do in front of our kids is likely to be repeated (and often magnified) by them.
We can choose to live our lives in obedience to God, or we can choose to take things in our own hands.
Yes, when we go our own way, and choose to sin, we are demonstrating a distrust in God that those around us will notice and often emulate.
You have to ask yourself, is this what you really want?
Oh friend, your sin will impact you and it will impact your family.
Do you want to heap trouble on their heads?
So, take a moment and prayerfully ask the Lord to show you any area of compromise with sin in your life.
Catch the little foxes! Put out the fires, before your house burns down!
Remember, Romans 2:4, it’s out of God’s kindness that He shows us our sin and leads us to repentance.
If He shows you something, it is for your good and for the good of those you love.
And know this—He will be your strength to walk away from sin and walk toward His better way.
God is for us. God’s Word is for us! We can trust Him to guide us to His best as we choose to follow Him.
