An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

For the Children

(Pro 20:7 KJV) The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

It is important to walk in righteousness.  One part of that requirement is that our eternal salvation depends on it.  If you want to live in one of those mansions that Jesus said He was going to prepare then it makes a difference how you live.  Rebellious sinners will get what they have invested in.

But there is something more important than you and me, at least if you are a parent.  I guess the concern could be extended to anyone who has others looking up to them but here it refers to the “children” (1121) [ben] (sons NASB) that are watching our walk and mimicking our walk.  If the way we walk won’t get us into heaven then it will keep them out also.  We walk in righteousness because our children are watching.  

So?  Keep in mind that loving our children involves setting the example.
