II Kings 21:21 And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them: 22 And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of the LORD.
He walked in the way of his father. He served the idols that his father served. He worshipped his father’s idols. He then forsook the God of his fathers, Israel’s God. He didn’t serve or obey God.
How much influence does a dad have? It sure seems to have affected this man, Amon. I wonder how much influence we have as dads.
It would at least be worth our while to consider how much our children are learning from us and how we can better influence them for God and right!
