The impact a father has on many generations is great. We set the tone for not just the future of our kids, but their kids, and their kids.
The more I am around extended family and the families of friends, the more I see the impact dads have. We are a couple poor decisions away from devastating the generations after us. This is why it is so important to be held accountable, to have no secrets, and the think before we act. It is so easy to get off course, the make a fatal mistake we cannot fix, and to set our kids up to fail. There is grace, that is ours to have should we live in it, but we must choose it.
Divorce, anger, depression and apathy have played huge roles in my lineage. And I choose to stop the trend here, so my kids will know more about hope, joy, peace and forgiveness.
