Take a moment to contemplate the roles that Dads play in their children’s lives. Our kids are watching to see if what we say matches our actions.
“Dad, you don’t know it right now…But I am watching you…Watching the things you do…I am watching the way you treat people, the way you treat me and my mom and my sister…The way you live your life is having a big impact on me.
The time you spend with me even doing simple things will give me a sense of security. There will be times in my life where I maybe not sure what to do, but I will look how you stood up for what was right. Please don’t be afraid to show me your failures, to show me your mistakes… I will learn from them.
Dad, are you listening? I am watching…Watching to see if you really believe what you say about God. You need to help show me the way. Show me how to live like that isn’t sin, but is good.
So I am watching you dad…every day. You are teaching me how to live, whether you know it or not.”
