I Love You Daddy

Posted on January 23, 2016 at 7:45 PM

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. Titus 2:7

 

It’s a well-known fact that kids identify their parents—and especially their fathers—with God. One day when I (JCD) was out of town on business, Shirley asked our son, Ryan, then two years old, to pray before their meal. Though Ryan had watched his mother and me pray at mealtimes, he had never been asked to say grace before. The invitation startled him, but he folded his little hands, bowed his head, and said reverently, “I love you, Daddy. Amen.”

 

When Shirley later told me what had happened, the story unsettled me. I hadn’t realized the degree to which Ryan linked me with his heavenly Father. I wasn’t even sure I wanted to stand in those shoes! But I had no choice, and neither do you. We parents have been given the awesome responsibility of representing God to our vulnerable little children. That’s why it is critically important for us to acquaint our kids with the nature of God—in particular His unfathomable love and His justice. Your example can lay a firm foundation of faith for your children.

 

Jesus said, “The Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing” (John 5:19). Let’s reveal the heart of God at home with our every deed.

I�m impressed, I have to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a blog that�s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is one thing that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing regarding this.
