And so … become yourself

Morning: Psalm 93, 96; Numbers 6:22-27; Revelation 15:1-8
Evening: Psalm 34; Matthew 18:1-14

Crosby, Stills & Nash said it for Father’s Day: teach your children and your parents well.  What must we teach one another?  Just this - become yourself.  Have you noticed how wise persons attend to children?  They have learned what Jesus taught … Children do not stroke your ego; you can learn humility with them. They are themselves. Children know what really matters and how you should spend your time. No wonder Jesus warned us to protect children … they are doorways into the really real world. Children do not care who is important; they care only who is real.
