|Me and Dayana tonight after church!|
No, not ashamed that she had come, but ashamed of the fact that it is because of my 4 year old daughter that she was there and not because of me.
You see, Josey, my 4 year old, has been the one inviting Dayana’s son, Denziel, Josey’s classmate, to church.
|Denziel & Josey tonight after church!|
There is no excuse for me not inviting Dayana, only shame because it was my 4 year old daughter inviting them and not me. I am hoping I can learn from her childlike exuberance. Learn to get out of my comfort zone. Become more like her, like a child in my manner of having no shame.
Why has it taken me so long to see this? I don’t know. But I do know that if I could have more of a childlike faith, or become more like my 4 year old, I could invite more people to church.
|Ms. Andrea, Dayana's daughter, at church tonight!|
My prayer is for God to make me more like Josey.
Maybe then I won’t be ashamed.
Ashamed that I did not ask first. Ashamed because a 4 year old beat me, a 29 year old, at inviting others to church.
Has your child ever put you to shame in a situation similar to this? Would you be willing to share a time of when you were ashamed?
I love to hear from my viewers/readers and your feedback is appreciated!
