Genesis 26:7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.
Abraham had lied about his wife and how Isaac is doing the same thing. It is amazing how our children do what we do. We want them to do what we say but they end up doing what we do. There is a great deal of responsibility in being a parent. Our children are learning how to act, to think, to serve God, everything by watching us.
I want to be more careful. I have made so many mistakes that will probably be reflected in the lives of my children. They are already there. I want to get better over the coming years. I want to leave a godly heritage and example.
I know that I am being watched in both my best and my worse moments!
