Authentic Faith

I saw this quote on face book.
A friend said it.  {Thanks, Jeffrey Reed}




The authenticity of the faith of parents has a

direct correlation to the likelihood that kids

 will remain in church when they become 

adults.


I agree wholeheartedly.
If kids and teens don't see their parents living out their faith in an authentic way, then I don't think they really care if they have any themselves.  They see their parents and say well, they are just doing this on Sundays so why do I need it at all?
I think that until parents understand this and really begin to grow their own faith, kids won't see the need for it either.  
I've got much more to say on the subject but I'd love to hear what you have to say......

What do you think?
