Monkey see, monkey do is a saying that originated in Jamaica in the early 18th century and popped up in American culture in the early 1920s. The saying refers to the learning of a process without an understanding of why it works. Another definition implies the act of mimicry, usually with limited knowledge of the consequences.

“Monkey see, monkey do” is not an excuse you can use with God.
The Old Testament tells the story over and over of a generation that repeated the actions of the previous. In other words, it can’t be their fault – they are just acting as they were taught.
Begs the questions, “What are you teaching the next generation? What are your actions teaching them over and above your words?”
Oh and by the way – NEXT GENERATION – you are not with excuse. God has written His law on your heart. In other words, you know better.
Live your faith – now and always!
