Role Model

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 KJV

Training is not just teaching. My mother used to say, “Do what I say, not what I do”. Believe me, that does not work.

Training is repetitive action. Atheletes, marksmen, welders, artists, etc., all are trained by repetitive action that reinforces teaching.

The same is true of how a child is trained as a Christian. How a parent teaches is important but more important is how they model. A Child will copy what they observe.

A Child will Honor like you honor, Love like you love, Worship like you worship, have Faith like you have faith, and Serve like you serve.

You are the role model.

What are you modeling?

Does your walking match up with your talking?

Are you the same at home as you are at church?

Just a thought for today.
