When it comes to raising children, the “do as I say, not as I do” method is highly ineffective. Words are worthless unless they are followed up with action. God has given us an instruction book called the Bible that tells us how to live. God also sent Jesus, who sought and followed His Father’s will and, in so doing, gave us an example to follow. If we want people to believe that Jesus makes a difference in our lives, they need to see evidence of His presence in our behavior. As believers we must learn His statutes, proclaim Him, and live for Him. The influence we leave could impact eternity for someone else.
