Research continues to show that parents are the greatest influence on their children of anything or anyone in the world, both positive and negative. Participation of a teenager in sex, drugs, alcohol and smoking or even religious engagement are all influenced the most by Parents. Their ability to shape the lives of their children is stronger than news, magazines, advertisements, popular movie stars, and even their peers.
Combine this with a three generational understanding — that at any given time there are always three generations alive in every culture and on this planet. Grandparents, parents and children. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God oversees and blesses multiple generations. Whether you are a parent or a grandparent, God can use you to be significant in the lives of your loved ones.
Rise up and be a pivotal parent!
