As parents, we do all we can to train our children during the eighteen or so years they are under our roof. However, there are many times during those years of training that our children don’t live up to the standards that they’ve been taught.
I remember one incident in particular when I went to pick up my son from his 5-year-old class at church. My husband was the Associate Pastor, and we expected a certain level of obedience because of our role. When I asked the teacher how my son’s behavior was, I found out he had been leading the class in walking all over the desks. I was so embarrassed that I apologized and hurried off with my son.
