Like a muddied fountain and a polluted spring is a righteous man who yields, falls down, and compromises his integrity before the wicked. – Proverbs 25:26
The choices we make as mothers will not only affect the lives of our children, they will also cause us to be polluted if we are making poor choices in life. Our testimony will be destroyed. We will cause our children and those within our sphere of influence to possibly stumble, lose hope, or even harm their spiritual walk.
This may seem melodramatic… maybe it is. However, I really do not think so. I truly believe that the influence we hold over our children is far greater than we could ever imagine. We cannot bow to the ways of this world! We must stand up for truth and righteousness! We must not allow our hearts and minds to become polluted with this world and its sinful passions and wayward ideals.
Father God, thank You for Your Word–even the meaty portions that I sometimes find harder to swallow. Thank You for grace, mercy, and forgiveness. But, I also want to thank You for truth, justice, and the Blood of Jesus that gives me strength to DO what is right. Thank You for all that You are, and all that You do for me each and every day! I love You, Lord. Help me to walk in Your ways, and to remove, avoid, and keep the pollution far from me! Help me to be a better example before my children, and a light to those that I influence. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ MIGHTY Name, amen!
