God continues to use my kids to teach me much
and my greatest life lessons have come from being a parent
…this week the lesson came from #86
He got in the truck after practice on Wednesday and said
and yet, the higher authorities were starting him
in a defensive position on the offensive line
and he was less than thrilled
|look at that incredible block by the left guard!
by game time on Thursday, though,
he was ready to go
he chose to be the best
left guard he could be
and he did
in the end
he played 5 different positions
and most of the winning game
What’s the life lesson?
Well, I don’t always like my
starting position either
I want to be what I think I am
and when I find myself filling another role
I’m not often thrilled
I watched my son bloom
where he was planted
and I saw his reward…
a boy more than thrilled when he walked
out of the locker room
with that deep thrill and contentment
that comes from doing a great job…
regardless of what the job is.
He who is faithful in a very little thing is
faithful also in much
