“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my (or my family’s) faults, failings and quirks by denying them.
Since our family lives in Knoxville and we moved here from Kingsport, one may think that the Scattergories task of thinking of a U.S. city that starts with ‘K‘ should be a piece of cake. Of course the college graduate, home educating father of 10 did NOT leave it blank because he was unable to think of a single one.
We try to make it a practice to regularly read books to our children about great men and women who lived godly lives of strength and bravery for Christ. We want to place before our children heroes of the faith, men and women for them to emulate.
One of our current reads is The Story of John G. Paton; Thirty Years Among South Sea Cannibals. Of course Colby did NOT recently say,
“I want to find someone to roast over the fire and eat for dinner.”
Apparently we may need a bit more clarity about whom it is admirable to emulate.
