The Lord does not forget those who genuinely care for Him.
Children obey the adults who show them the spirit of authority, but they will not listen to any adults who have exhibited acts of irresponsibility. Examples are seen when many parents say they are finding it difficult to control their children. Perhaps they ought to cross-check themselves to discover where they went wrong. A child who grew up hearing his parent employing filthy worlds in those conversations will likely end up emulating. The same goes for children with parents who smoke or drink a lot. Hence why we hear about pathological heritage and vicious cycle.
A better heritage than the above is the one every authentic Christian enjoys with Jehovah. The more he or she lives in direct accordance with God’s instructions, the more the light of the Almighty radiates nonstop in their life.
