I sure wish I hadn’t done that.

Posted on 10/12/2020 by Greg Yoder

I remember a time in my life where I was doing something, I wasn’t being a very good example. What made it worse is I thought I was getting away with it, but my kids saw me do it. A situation caused me to get angry and that anger not only came out, but the words weren’t very nice either. A few weeks later, I found one of my kids in a similar situation. In my correction, I said, “Honey why would you say something like that to them?” They said, “Dad, that’s what YOU did.” Ouch. I wish I could tell you I handle it well. At first, I got defensive. Bantered back and forth, and then the Holy Spirit said, “learn from this.” Our sin can be revealed by our kids. Learn from it. Don’t dismiss it.
