Which Is Better?

Build children or repair adults?

No brainer, isn’t it?

Then why are we so challenged to invest the time in children?

“Busy. Busy. Dreadfully busy. You’ve no idea what I have to do”. — Line from VeggieTales song

At the root of this challenge is me. And you. And every other adult with an opportunity to inspire a child by the power of our own example.

One reply on “Which Is Better?”

Dear Jeff,

And the thing is this – they are watching and wanting to be built up, whether we notice them watching or not. Children immulate what they see around them. That’s the reason it really bothered me a few years ago when Charles Barkley, the NBA great, said, “I am not a role model. Basketball players aren’t role models.” In other words, he didn’t want the responsibility of being someone that others look up to. He just wanted to play the game, get paid, and live a life without it being watched. But Charles, they watch regardless of what you want, and regardless of how you act.

And you are right – VeggieTales gets it too! 🙂
