6 Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness
8 Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
9 They are a garland to grace your head
and a chain to adorn your neck.

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York.
Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life.
After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature.
In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God.
Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
