What will your kids pick up from you?

Standard

IN 2 MORE POSTS, I WILL BE WRITING A SPECIAL 1000TH POST!—-CHECK IT OUT

Some times its good just to be reminded about our influence as parents.

So, with that in mind,  I thought the following quote was a bit sobering in thinking about what kind of influence I am having on my children:

“kids will be blessed by their parents’ wise choices and bent toward their parent’s bad choices”

James MacDonald

How about you?  When it comes to your character decisions and how well you are fulfilling your responsibilities in these areas of your life. what kind of influence are you having on your kids:

Devotion to God (do you take time to develop a vibrant relationship with a living God and go far behind just empty words of belief that lack any tangible follow through?)

Personal Health- (are you being proactive with managing good health, or are you out of control and reacting to the latest ailment that happens to you (sometimes due to lack of exercise, good diet, and handling stress?)

Importance of Family  (do you know the heart condition (and life circumstances of your spouse and kids?)

Acting wisely with your finances and possessions (and not letting them control you)

Work (excellence at work, but not obsession over it)

Volunteering (are you investing in others with your time and talents)

Leisure (is life just one massive treadmill, or do you regularly take time to relax and be energized from it?)
