Most of us Monday-Saturday spend our time trying to keep up with the world. We all seem to be busy in today’s world. Even my retired grandparents seem to be busier now that they ever were while working.
It is in this business that we often lose track of God. He is long forgotten until next Sunday when we realize we need to pick Him up again. We grab our Bibles which sat Idly on our coffee tables (most of us never get it out of our cars) and we head over to attend service.
-Have you ever paid attention to how children pick things up about us, habits that we have that we ourselves don’t even notice?
-When a child picks up on a weakness or habit, they will use that to their advantage and train themselves to always when rejected, seek out that weakness until they get what they seek.
My kids know that they can win my wife over with kindness and sweetness, me not as much. Sadness works better for me.
We have trained them with that over time when we finally give in on situation after situation.
Children figure out really fast what types of behaviors gets them attention. After being a father, working in youth ministry, and being a juvenile justice officer, it is often easy to tell which children had good parents who paid them mind and who didn’t. I can tell you that most of those kids locked up did not because they figured out that bad behavior got them recognized by their peers and caused adults to surround them on all sides. They began to associate their negative behavior with the attention they got when they committed it. Now, instead of their parents doing their jobs, they are locked up with us and we are expected to give them the best care and treatment as if they were doing a good job and critique us.
