Lead by Example


We lead by example—and more so with our children than with anyone else.

Matthew 7:12

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.

We lead by example—and more so with our children than with anyone else. Your children are always watching you to see if you are consistent, fair, loving, and if you really care about them. The best way to teach your children is to lead by example. If you want to teach them to have a compassionate heart, then you must have a compassionate heart. If you want your children to be generous and thoughtful, then you must display those traits. Ask God to fill you with his loving Spirit and these traits will flow out of you.


Father, fill me with your Spirit. Pour into me so I can in turn pour into my family. I want to walk with you and depend on you so that your loving ways will flow through me. I cannot give what I do not have, and I know that I need you in order to love my children the way you love me—unconditionally. Thank you for giving love freely. I pray that I will grow deeper in my walk with you. Amen.
