The main reason is that I don’t want him to hurt. I don’t want him to make mistakes. I don’t want him to realize that life is hard and not fair. All of these things will happen regardless of how much I try to protect him, though, sooner or later. That is why his dad and I have to take time with him now and in the future to teach him what the Bible says about different things. We have to stress to him that the Bible is his guidebook and will give him direction for anything that he is facing. What would happen if this was not a priority with us? He would not be able to deal with his life in a righteous way. Life throws so many things at our children that we cannot even imagine or fathom. Things that I probably do not understand. By giving him the tools to find the solution through God’s Word, then I am giving him the tools for life. I thank God for giving J to us and our responsibility is to equip J to live and work for God. After all, J belonged to Him first!
