Pro 20:7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
I hope that you'll bear with me a little today. I want to indulge in a little shameless-hubby-admiration here. The first thing I thought of, when I read this verse, was my husband.
Years ago, when the children were all very young, he was offered a promotion in the large corporation that employed him. Discussions with his boss revealed that there would be a lot of changes in store: a move to a much larger city would be required, which would distance the kids from their grandparents, and place them into much different situations as far as playmates and cultural differences. (We lived in the country, on a large piece of land, where the kids could play safely in the pastures, woods, and even the creek. There were homeschooled kids up at our place often, and many softball games and scavenger hunts were played in the pasture.)
There were other changes in store: he found that he'd be expected to entertain many of the customers, at establishments that he usually didn't go to. And he'd be expected to look the other way if the customer wanted to spend some time with someone other than his own spouse. For all of these changes, he would receive a new title, and a significant (huge) increase in pay.
My husband didn't accept that promotion. He chose "the road less traveled" and modeled integrity for his young children to see, and for them to learn from as they grew up. They continued to enjoy and learn from their grandparents' wisdom, and to experience the country life that they now fondly look back on. They may not have had as many toys as they would have, or as fancy a wardrobe, but they smile when they talk of their hikes and games and good memories. And me? His wife? I've always been proud of that decision, and the integrity that he showed.
