Humor -- A Boy's Fear

Daniel (my son) and I were discussing Ephesians 6:1-3 one day. He's a rather intelligent teenager, as far as being a teenager goes anyway. And he's extremely compassionate as far as boys go. In fact, I'd venture to say that Daniel is an exceptional young man as far as being a person in general goes... set apart, so to speak. But greater than any of those attributes, I am the proud parent of a boy who knows the fear of the Lord.

However, (Bet you didn't see that one coming.) he's also typical. He likes to aggravate and tease his mother. An hour or so after we had our little discussion about that scripture, I was standing in the bathroom, brushing my teeth, if I recall correctly, when Daniel snuck around the corner and gave me a little punch in the arm. He then turned to run out of the room. But he was suddenly stopped when, upon quickly turning around, he struck his funny bone on the wooden doorframe.

While he was still moaning, I reminded him of the scripture we'd been studying. "Oh, no! Mom, I am so sorry. Please forgive me!"

I had to laugh at the look of fear on his face. "Son, it isn't me you need to ask for forgiveness."

What a way to see your kid run to his prayer closet. That was "the fear of God" in action!

Ephesians 6:1-3 NIV Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "HONOR YOUR father and MOTHER" - which is the first commandment with a promise-- "THAT IT MAY GO WELL WITH YOU AND THAT YOU MAY ENJOY LONG LIFE ON THE EARTH."

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

What a blessing to have a child, a son, more so a teenager, grow in the fear of the Lord. What a beautiful relationship you have with your son. You must be a proud mom.

Too Cute! I wish that more parents would share these awesome memories with us, the God Fearing Acknowledgement memories, however, all memories should be God Fearing Acknowledgement, because HE is in ALL Things, God Bless Daniel, and God bless you too JOYce.....

It's so neat to know God has a humorous side to His awesomeness. Bet your boy thinks twice the next time a mischievous thought runs through his typical teenage mind. Great story!! - Nancy

PS- Thanks, again for the kind words! :)
