He Thinks I'm a Hero
My son drew this picture last month while we were at a Salvation Army Leadership Camp down in Gibsons, BC.
He was asked to draw somebody and he told me it was a picture of me as a superhero! Apparently I was flying and able to shoot fire out of my hands. Now I must admit, that would be pretty cool. I would love to be able to fly and shoot fire out of my hands. I would settle for just flying. I was also tickled as a Dad that my son saw me as a superhero! I know he won't always see me this way.
When my daughter was very young she also told me I was her hero. I want to be my kids hero but more importantly, I want my kids to look at me and see Jesus living in me and through me. I want my life, my actions, to point my children to their Heavenly Father.
Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."
I have read that passage a lot lately. I want my family to love God with all out heart, soul and strength. I want to impress that on my children. I want to share the love of God and how awesome He is. If my kids walk with God throughout their life, then I truly will feel like a superhero!
