Legacy

I have written several times about the workshops we do to help fathers and in this last one parents teach the Bible more effectively.  We had that session this morning.  All of my kids and my son in law were in the room; well our third child was linked in by video from Pittsburgh.
Our kids will do and say what we do and say to them... if not immediately, eventually
The Q&A lasted about 45 minutes.  The questions were similar to what they have been asked before.  This is about the 25th time we have done this.  The take away at the end of the time is always similar.  Today was no different.  As parents we have to be consistently in the word for ourselves, we have to try different things to reach our kids, and we have to persist in both in that order of importance.

The changing thing for me is to listen to my two older children who now have kids of their own share that they are going to do the same things that we did with them.  Our kids will do what we did with them even if they are resistant to the process.

That is both encouraging and a warning.
