Example to your children
BEING THE ULTIMATE EXAMPLE
Kids learn some of the most important lessons by watching the most influential people in their lives — their parents. They learn by watching your example in good times and bad. And in the bad times, when you act with anger, ridicule, condescension, selfishness, etc, you will have an extra opportunity to model the humility that results from confession and repentance, and the mercy and grace that comes from being a child of God.
As your children grow, they will see you are not perfect. Hopefully they will seek the source of perfection in the only place it can be found, God. You can show them the way by demonstrating that your response to imperfections is to present them to God with a grateful heart, knowing His mercy and grace will wipe the slate clean. What an opportunity to communicate the gospel message to your kids in a practical, real-life manner!
Be an example of God's patience, mercy, and grace. Your kids are watching.
