I noticed that the perception of God was different for the parent and the child. I do not want to make too much of this, but the difference makes sense to me. Adults have a longer perspective. As we mature we can see the impact of God in our lives and the lives of others over time. We see His hand and the result of His work in people and situations.
Our kids do not have that perspective; especially young children. They see the immediate. The big. The awesome. As Moses put it the majesty. But they do not stay children, they grow. Eventually they become parents. As their perspective changes they begin to see the work of God not only in their lives but in the lives of their children.
It occurs to me that the parent may be the lens through which the child begins to notice the majesty of God. Which emphasizes the importance of our growth in our apprehension of His work. This seems to align with the exhortation we get as parents in Deuteronomy 6:6 – 7, 20.
