Break the cycle of sin!
It is easy for people to use their parents, their family and their surroundings as excuses for their sin The fact of the matter is, they choose to stay in their sin because they love their sin and thus they hate God. Those who choose to leave their sin and seek after God because they love God are the ones who break the cycle of sin. They receive mercy from God in spite of their former lives of sin. They no longer accept any excuse to sin but instead find joy in keeping God's commandments. ...the Lord thy God...(is)...a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:5-6
