Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father.”
Whether we realize it or not they are watching. They will do what they see us doing. So let’s purpose ourselves to do our best according to the standard of the word of God!
Father we thank You that You are a Father that show’s us good things. Help us reveal Your goodness to our children through our own behavior. Forgive us for sometimes being lazy and letting the world define the standard instead of establishing the Word to be the standard. Help us do and say what we see and hear You do by Your word. Make us aware of behavior that is not pleasing to You and help us correct it so that we can reflect Your image before our children. Give us balance as we enjoy our children and watch them grow into who You have called them to be. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
