Where we Stop Short, Our Children Will Stop
If we haven’t been delivered from our bondages, we will take our children into the captivity we have endured and it will be repeated at least one more generation, and likely for more. What one generation does in moderation, the next generation usually does in excess. What one generation abandons, another is not likely to pick up. (That works both positively and negatively.) Where we stop short of glory, our children will stop short. We must be able to say “do as I do. Look at me and imitate me; do what I do, even when no one is looking.” The fact is: they will imitate us whether we say it or not.
