generational decay

They have not humbled themselves even to this day, nor have they feared, nor walked in my law and my statutes that I set before you and before your fathers.
Jeremiah 44:10

When fathers do not honor God
their children too will go astray
when God's truth is disdained
it leads to generational decay

Even those who play the game
looking holy in what they say
will eventually be shown as fake
by their generational decay

God makes Himself known, even
chasing those who run away
but He will not lift consequences
when sin leads to generational decay

Obeying God is hard to do
especially when the world wants us to play
the laziness that chills our hearts
will always cause generational decay

The warnings from the lives of saints
who failed God in ancient day
serve only to remind us to be true
and fight our own generational decay

We have God's Truth, His Holy Word
to show us how to seize the day
and fight sin in us, train for godliness
and repent of our generational decay
