“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”

3 John 4

A child “walks worthy of a parent” when he lives in such way as to reflect honour on that parent for the method in which he has trained him; when he so lives as to bring no disgrace on him, so as not to pain his heart by misconduct, or so as to give no occasion to any to speak reproachfully of him. (Barnes Commentary)

Children need good role models and examples. We would be a disappointment if our children didn’t see Jesus Christ modeled in our lives and also want to be like Him.

As parents, we must tell our children about Jesus and be role models who live for Christ. That was the case with Paul, who counted Timothy as his son in the Lord (1 Timothy 1:18), and with John, who rejoiced over those whom he called his children (3 John 4).

Like them, let’s live, talk, and love in a way that points everyone especially our children to Jesus.

The greatest gift a parent can give is a worthy example.
