BONUS: Praying integrity over our kids
When I was in fourth grade, I had a class assignment to prepare a report on a well-known person we considered to have strong integrity.
Not joking, I did my report on Lee Iacocca (a famous automobile executive from the 1960s–80s).
I know about as much about Lee Iacocca today as I did then: nothing.
But I liked how his name sounded.
What’s the point to this story?
Basically nothing—other than that integrity matters and our kids need strong examples of integrity in their lives. 😂
Today, we’re wrapping up our study of Nehemiah and considering the ways his life was marked by integrity.
We’ll talk about how Nehemiah:
* answered God’s call on his life,
* waited on the Lord,
* fasted and prayed routinely,
* and pointed people back to God rather than himself.
These things and much more made him a man of integrity whom God used for great kingdom work.
I’m looking forward to praying integrity together for our kids.
And, for good measure, I’ll leave you with my “favorite” Lee Iacocca quote: “The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family.”
I can second that with God at the helm in our families,
