Some of us may have told our children, don’t do what I do, but do what I say.
We have all heard this and may have told this to our kids. We want our kids to do the right things and we want the best for them. If we do not model what is best, we can not expect them to do what we say. Practice what you preach before your children. This will reap much fruit.
However, one thing you can and should tell your children is what God has done for you. This is a seed that will help them in their life journey.
