Truth Cultivates Piety At Home
What effects children is the example of the lifestyle they see in the parent(s). The reality of cultivating life or a lifestyle comes primarily from a shadow of what is seen and heard from the figure of guidance that leads children into an influence, a particular range of understanding. The fathers if they eat sour grapes will set the attitudes of the children in a particular position that will bring discomfort and develop a foundation that will follow them for the rest of their lives, leading them to a path of righteousness or a highway of death, and some of us have made "U" turns for one reason or another, but Truth still serves as the standard for positive achievement. If you work hard, you will see the fruits of your labor and there is no model to counter that. Our lack of application will only allow us to miss the opportunity of salvation where we can all be free from the judgement of generations but will it stop with you? Will you live the Truth and set the foundation for your offspring? Will you be the example before them everyday? Will you live Truth in a way that leads and leaves an everlasting impression of piety that will reinforce the Mercy, the Grace, the Longsuffering, the Abundance of Goodness, the Truth for others to see? Knowing that we face iniquity everyday but in Grace walk in Truth asking for forgiveness openly with a humble heart to achieve deliverance, not only for ourselves, but for establishing the Truth of the Kingdom of God in our children, so that they suffer not the independence of the presence of God, and grow in Grace.
And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
1 Peter 2:1-25
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
El Sali, God, my Rock (2 Samuel 22:47); for the cultivation of our personal life for our homelife we say with a oneness of spirit, thank you. For the supernatural restoration wherein you have anointed us with fruits of Your Spirit we give You all our praise. We decree and declare blessings upon our children who intuitively follow in our footsteps, sometimes inadvertently misunderstanding our repentance or failing to hear or pleas for Grace; step boldly before You in Grace and Mercy, so that the establishment of Your Kingdom can flow and bring the increase for Your Glory. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
