Ron: You’ve heard of the trickle-down effect, right? Well, parents have one, too.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Proverbs 29 in the Bible makes a comment about leadership: “If a ruler listens to falsehood, all his officials will be wicked.” The principle is what influences the leader trickles down to those he leads. That’s absolutely true of parents as well. Perhaps that’s why Proverbs 23 says, “Apply your heart to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge. Do not withhold discipline from a child…”

See, the order is important here. First, apply your heart to instruction and knowledge, then, THEN, teach your children. Because what influences you will trickle down to the kids in your care. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
