Daily devotional: Be an example to my kids

Scripture
He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, because he walked in the ways of his father and mother and in the ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who caused Israel to sin.
1 Kings 22:52 NIV

Observation
Kids are inclined to walk in the steps of their parents. Although this is not guaranteed, it is one more reason to make sure I live my life in the way I want my kids to grow up to live their's--my action needs to back up my convictions and words.

Application
Be the person I want my kids to be!

Prayer
Lord, thank you for showing me this. I pray that You would work in me and convict me where I am not practicing what I preach or where I am blind to behaviors that are not in keeping with the man of God I want to be. Please give me the strength through Your Holy Spirit to grow and live in a manner that pleases You!
