Have you grown a little bit more wise today?
Today, I was feeding Averi. As I watched her hold the bottle and gulp down her milk in about 5 seconds flat - I thought about how I want to do things differently as a parent, and I became a little be frightened realizing that...this world is way messed up, people.
Way messed up.
I thought about how I would teach her about strangers, about why there is war, about the adversary and how he is real - even though you can't see him.
I thought about making good friends, not being a hypocrite, and I can't control everything she will choose to do or to say...
But I can show her why this world is worth living for.
I can show her the importance of: talking to the guy on the street, making food for a family that needs it, loving people who hurt you, and admitting you're wrong even when all the pride in your body wants to defend the opposite,
and how to be Christ-like.
Will I be perfect? Nope.
Will I make mistakes? Absolutely.
But at least she'll know why life is worth living.
To live the laws of God, serve other people, and being willing to change who you are today....
To be a better person tomorrow.
