Emulate

The Bible tells us that the sins of the fathers are passed on to succeeding generations. The virtues of the fathers can be passed along, too. If a father is an honest and upright man, and if he establishes any sort of adequate relationship with his sons and daughters, it is going to be very hard for those children to get off the track, or getting off, not to get back on. The desire to emulate and imitate is too strong.
