“PRETENDERS CANNOT PRETEND!”

“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.”Matthew 7:18 ~NASBYour child will be rooted in something. His/her roots will be strongly based upon what you, as parents, display. Your child will ultimately be an imitator of you.

Therefore, it is important to establish within them everything that is noble. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”

If your child is rooted in these noble virtues, he/she will never have to pretend to be good. Neither will they ever have a tough time to maintain these qualities in their life because, being rooted in their lives, it’ll be first nature to them to be true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, and of good repute.
What is the alternative? Jesus said, “…nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.” Basically, these are the pretenders because they never knew goodness. Their parents did not display it.
Your child depends on you to become the best person they can become. It’s up to you to demonstrate the best things.
Proverbs 1:8 says, “Hear, my son, your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”
