PARENTS, AN EXAMPLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN!
by Stan Caldwell

When we think of examples we think of Jesus, His apostles and other heroes of the faith. And certainly these are great examples for us to follow. Jesus is the greatest example of all time. "For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth: Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously...", 1 Peter 2:21ff. Paul speaks of this in 1 Cor. 11:1 saying, "Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ." In Hebrews 11 we see the great listing of those who lived by faith and what an example they set for us. We should follow such examples.

Our children need such examples of righteousness set before them. They may be too young to read the Bible. What they see and hear is their parents. They look to them for guidance. They almost blindly follow them wherever they lead. Parents are to train up the child in the way he should go, Prov. 22:6. Parents must ever keep in mind the needs of their children, however young or old they may be. We provide them food, shelter and clothing but do we provide them with a sound spiritual, righteous example by the life we are living? May God help us to direct our children toward heaven! They need to see us attending services, worshiping God, praying, reading our Bible and loving the Lord and His will more than anything else. Please, for yourself and your children and for all others you influence, do set a good example!
