Topic: Bridge the Gap [Billy Graham Devotional 19 November 2020]
Keep a close watch on all you do and think. Stay true to what is right . . . — 1 Timothy 4:16 (TLB)
In searching for ways to bridge the generation gap, there is no doubt that we, as parents, will have to practice what we preach, by striving more and more to bring our conduct into line with our code of beliefs.
No mother can demand that her daughter abstain from sleeping around when she herself is flirting and on occasion compromising her own moral conduct. No father, who wavers between heavy social drinking and occasional binges to the edge of alcoholism, and who can’t speak a pleasant word in the morning until he has had a cigarette, can yell incessantly at his son to get off marijuana, the route that often leads to hard drugs.
Consistency, constancy, and undeviating diligence to maintain Christian character are a must if the older generation is to command respect, or even a hearing, from the young.
Prayer for the day:
Younger eyes see my errant behavior, Lord. Help me to be the right example—one which will draw them to You.
