πŸ‘‘ Father to Father

I once read a testimonial from a father who lamented being so consumed with his career that he did not share his faith with his children. The result was that one of his sons plunged himself into a lifestyle of atheism, drug addiction, immorality, and other destructive behaviors. Some estimate that six out of ten who were raised in sound fundamental churches become 100% spiritually disengaged once they become adults.

It is amazing that only one generation after the nation of Israel was miraculously given their prosperous “promised land,” the next generation was spiritually lost. Judges 2:10 describes it this way: “…and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which He had done for Israel.” How could this have happened after so many blessings and dynamic miracles?

The answer is the older generation, and the men in particular, failed that generation spiritually. When they sat in their houses with their families, walked or worked together, retired for the night, or rose for the day, they were to “teach them diligently” the things of the Lord (Deut. 6:7).

We who know the Lord must awaken to our spiritual responsibilities to bring up our children, and grandchildren, in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. With no excuses, we men need to “man up,” making this our top priority. Will you join the rank of the faithful who pass on their faith to the next generation? source
