Our youngest daughter’s name is Faith. Yesterday she did something that me very happy. Her class had to do a Thanksgiving assignment that included the things that they are thankful. It includes many of the things that you would expect. But I was particularly impressed with one item.
Did you see that? “I’m thankful for Jesus because he created us.” Not only did she mention Jesus, she gave him a high christology. Faith has no idea that there are people who don’t want to hear about Jesus, especially not a divine Jesus.
I do not pressure on my children to do or say things because their dad is a pastor. So when I see these spontaneous demonstrations of faith, I get pretty excited.
I am a proud dad.
