The righteous who walks in his integrity— blessed are his children after him!
Proverbs 20:7 ESV
Your actions, whether you like it or not, will affect those who come after you, most specifically, your children. Like leading a group of children across a field deep with snow, those following behind you are most likely to step in the large footprints that you leave behind. Make sure you are leading them in the right direction.
Someday, many of them will be parents too, free to place some footprints of their own.
Question: What direction am I leading my children through example? Is there anything about the example I’m setting that I’d like to change?
