There are some words that I’ve known and used all my life but I didn’t really fully understand. I don’t want it to be that way with the kids that I hope I’ll have one day. I’d like to have the chance to sit down with them and talk to them about words and ideas that I value, in the hope that, as they grow up, they would value them as well. I want to be able to help them define these words, instead of letting the media or their surroundings confuse them on what these words really mean.
Come to think of it, there are so many words, but I stopped before my list went any longer. Here are the ones that came to mind:
And just in case you can’t see the graphic, here are the words again:
Bless • Blessing • Compassion • Dream • Faith • Family • Forgive • Generosity • Grace • Gratitude • Honor • Hope • Humility • Invest • Joy • Justice • Laugh • Lead • Learn • Listen • Love • Mercy • Patience • Perseverance • Preserve • Purpose • Respect • Serve • Service • Stewardship • Success • Trust • Understand • Worth
Until that time comes, I’ll just have to practice! Tomorrow at Kids Church, we’ll be talking about another valuable word: DEVOTION. :)
How about you? What are the words you’d like to talk about with your kids?
