There's A Concept

There’s a Concept!

The other day, my nine year old daughter and I were having a light-hearted debate about the right way to do something. She boldly says, “Mama, why don’t you do it this way?” The next thing she said left my mouth gaping in shock. “Now there’s a concept!” exploded out of her mouth like a rocket to my ears! I stared in amazement as this child went from nine years old to thirty-five in the matter of five seconds! Okay…stop…count to ten…what did she just say to me? I was looking at a 9 year old reflection of me!

Adults tend to have phrases or words, good or bad, that we have casually spoken for years. Old habits die hard…until we hear those little nasty habits flow out of the mouths of babes! Those same little phrases or words sometimes do not sound as sweet when our children are repeating them. As my girls grow up, I have become more conscious of my words and my actions. Not only are they repeating my words, but they are also imitating my actions. Watching my children is like looking in the mirror.

My favorite saying is, “My children are a reflection of me….am I sparkling in the light or smudged with fingerprints?” As a parent, I consistently need to examine my heart and life to ensure that I portray a Christian example for my children to follow. As a child of God, I must study God’s word to learn by His example and reflect His actions!
