Our kids have super powers. They can see and hear EVERYTHING. The greatest way we can teach them, and the greatest way they will learn, is not by our preaching at them, but by how we are doing life. How we respond under fire. When we are treated unfairly, when someone cuts us off, when the bank account goes red…. How we treat other people and talk about other people behind their back, our kids will watch and mimic. Will we be known to our kids by our love and patience, or lack there of? And when we screw up, will they see us ask for forgiveness or simply sweep things under the rug? We aren’t perfect, but how we respond in shortcomings is as important as how we should have behaved to begin with. Listened to an incredibly inspiring interview of Ernie Johnson on the Story Brand podcast. Absolutely worth your time and the inspiration behind these words.
