When you hold your new son or daughter for the first time, all kinds of emotions well up. The experience also causes us to focus like a laser on the things we want to teach to them and emulate. Especially, parents want to pass on a legacy that teaches their kids how to be a man or woman of God.
Mitch Tidwell offers some thoughts on the importance of being a person of integrity and teaching that to our kids. This is something that takes time to develop in them but is one of the most critical things for them to learn as they live a life of faith.
"Integrity is one of those things that everyone admires but no one celebrates. It is often the least celebrated attribute of any leader, mostly because it is unseen and hard to measure. Integrity in its simplest form is who you are. It’s your inner quality. Integrity is like the frame within a house. No one can see it, but it’s holding everything together." - Mitch Tidwell
