- The national message: We CAN do it, so there ha!
- The state message: We CAN legally do it, so there ha!
- The local message: We ARE socialized, would you like me to help you with your groceries, Ma’am?
But today, I’m thinking a little more closely to home. Actually, I am thinking: home, itself.
What messages are we sending our children? What messages am I sending my children?
Although I struggle with consistency in sending the right message, here are a few sticky-notes of message ponderings that I ponder from time to time.
What messages are we sending our children …
All of these are important messages to ponder. But the one that seems to encompass them all:
Are we sending our children the message of God’s Word?
It’s value, it’s import, it’s ever-never-changing-ness? It’s stability in an unstable world?
Of all the messages we send our children – and we send them so very many it’s humbling – let’s be sure we are sending them His message, His Word.
God will be there when the baby birds leave the nest, our own communication limited to short bursts of tweet wisdom rather than epic birdsongs of instruction.
And He will be there when the mama bird sings no more.
So let’s ponder our messages, our song.
Let’s speak, sing, tweet and send our messages and His!
