“As a parent, you can see the history of your child and their choices to follow God in Spirit and in Truth, in addition to witnessing the horror of bad choices and mistakes as well.” ~ Jon Barnes
Children can choose to copy their parents or find something/someone else to model better behavior, wisdom, and knowledge to improve their future. When a child copies God and His ways, a parent can experience true success and happiness from such a blessing and wise choice. However, the parent should copy God as a child tends to copy their parents.
Beware of fake motives in the hearts of children, parents, and people that would tarnish and distort the True Intentions of God’s Word, Ways, and Commandments. There is a tendency to look the other way, when the truth is clear and honest, because people will follow the money, greed, and power, by ignoring God and His Laws of Life.
When you have read the authentic copy of God’s Word to study His Ways, people can not feed you a fake message with false promises and ideas of evil. You will know the truth and walk in it, even if you are among the few on the road to righteousness. Others will follow as you copy God, yet many will not.
What are you doing to fix and avoid the horror of bad choices and mistakes in your life?

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.
Answer me when I call to you,
O God who declares me innocent.
Free me from my troubles.
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
How long will you people ruin my reputation?
How long will you make groundless accusations?
How long will you continue your lies? Interlude
You can be sure of this:
The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to him.
Don’t sin by letting anger control you.
Think about it overnight and remain silent. Interlude
Offer sacrifices in the right spirit,
and trust the Lord.
Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”
Let your face smile on us, Lord.
You have given me greater joy
than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.
