Do we hear ourselves when our kids speak?

Posted on 9/14/2016 by Greg Yoder

When was the last time we really didn’t like something? Were we vocal about it? I’m like that. I tend to say whatever comes to my mind. I’m not as bad I was once was, but still. When it comes to biblical morality and foundations of our faith, well, that can be a good thing, but when it comes to loving people, well, that’s another question. I remember when my daughter was seven or eight I was driving, following somebody who looked lost. Since I knew what was going on, I was patient—but my daughter, she said, “What an idiot!” I was shocked. Then I remembered saying that when I WASN’T so patient. What’s the lesson? Proverbs 21:23, “Whoever keeps his mouth and tongue keeps himself out of trouble.” 

Suggested Reading: Proverbs 21:23
