I call it Daddy Duty, those things that I as a father am supposed to teach my children. Things like respect and honor and why you should always do your best and love God more than anyone else.
Seems simple enough, except for all the times it isn’t. I’m not sure whether it’s because I’m just not that bright or because my kids are just that smart, but often it seems as if they’re the ones doing all the teaching and I’m the one doing all the learning.
A case in point is the subject I’ve been trying to teach them lately — the value of the eternal. Don’t worry about the things that never last, I’ve told them, just concentrate on the things that never end. Again, that seems simple enough. Also true enough. But as they’ve taught me, it isn’t always such.
