I heard almost the same thing twice today, and I usually take that as something that I'm supposed to pay attention to.
The first was on an excellent radio broadcast from Focus on the Family. It was by Rev. Tommy Nelson who said "An example is burned into a child. It never leaves". ( I will post more on this radio program later).
Then I was reading Guideposts this evening and saw this, "Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children" by Charles Swindoll.
Coincidence? I don't think so!
