As I wrap up my time at my seminar I look forward to returning home to hug my wife and kids. It is a true blessing to have the opportunity to travel to new places and engage with others in conversation and prayer regarding the state of the Christian Church in this country. However, all that pales in comparison to the true blessing of having your child ask you what are you learning at your seminar. I had one of those heart warming moments last night while on the phone with my 8-year-old. She asked “Daddy, what have you learned about God so far in your group?”
Children are a real blessing and they are learning from us all the time. It is good for us to remember to never brush aside the honesty inquiries of our children. It may not happen at the most convenient time for us or maybe we are in the midst of trying to figure something out, but we should commit to the best of our ability to respond in a way that shows our gratitude that they are interested in what we are doing.
Children love their parents. They don’t ask questions to annoy us. They ask so that they can get to know us better.
Take time for your children’s questions. It will bless your relationship with them in the long run.
