"There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job: and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil."
What a testimony! Job was a man who was very concerned about not just his walk with God, but also the spiritual condition of his family. Verse 5 tells us of how he would offer sacrifices on behalf of his children just in case they had cursed God in their hearts and sinned.
Job provides a beautiful picture of how to parent our children. First of all, he lived what he preached. Every parent ought to not place rules on their children that they themselves don't follow. Children are quite adept at seeing our hypocrisy. Secondly, Job demonstrated to his children the concepts of faithfulness and perseverance. The Bible says that he "continually" offered sacrifices for his children.
As parents, we must always remember that, as with everything else, our children really belong to God, and we are His stewards over them. It is our responsibility to "bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." (Ephesians 6:4)
Whether you're a parent, grand parent, or mentor, purpose to have a testimony like Job's and serve God with all of your heart. The next generation needs it!
