Joshua 24:14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
We love our parents and are very thankful for them but that doesn’t mean we want to make the same, silly, mistakes. I want to serve Him in sincerity. I want to live a life of truth. I want to not let the same sins plague my life. I want victory. I want to walk away from things that do not honor God.
Godly parents can help us so much, without a doubt. But we can also begin to think that what our parents do and did is the best ever. We can accept living at their same spiritual intensity instead of wanting more. I want more. I hope my children want more.
I want the double portion, don’t you? Let’s leave the past and move forward.
