The exasperated sigh when they need something while I am ON THE INTERNET????? The refusal to be inconvenienced by what is BEST for THEM? Eye rolling, venting at the driver in front of me, grumbling when life doesn't go my way? They see it all. And all of those things are like McDonald's for the soul. And I fed it to them.
I don't do everything right as a parent...I don't do everything wrong, either. But, if I don't like what I see in them, maybe I better take a good look at myself.
1 Corinthians 15:33 reminds me,
"Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character."
heavy stuff, God-sized work.
And I need to get in.
