Today’s reading II Kings 22-25
II Kings 23:37 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.
It is repeated over and over through this book of the Bible. They do evil like their parents did. What the parents do in moderation the children do in excess. And it keeps compounding because then the grandchildren get involved. God’s people are being taught by example and precept to not serve God but to do that which is evil in His sight.
This is almost like a broken record here in this part of the Bible. Generation after generation we are seeing the same problem.
What are we doing to make sure this isn’t repeated with our own children. You do know that your actions speak so loudly that they can not hear your words don’t you. You say go to church but you don’t. You say pray but you don’t. You say honor God but they know you never invest there but always have time and money for what is important to you.
They know that you anything for God and church are a sacrifice but your hobbies are not. They know that you will cut out the youth event as punishment so you do not have to take them to church but you never allow it to cut out what is really important to you.
What runs in your family?
