I’ve always known that I wanted to be a father, but I never imagined how challenging and frustrating it would be at times. On the flipside however, I never imagined how amazingly rewarding and fulfilling it could be. I think one of the greatest challenges of being a parent is finding the teachable moments in everyday life, trying to see the world through the eyes & mind of a three year old — teaching her that God made all things, and that we are to glorify Him, because He loves and takes care of us.
One of the greatest challenges as a father is trying to lead and teach by example. By the same token, I fear the day that I disappoint her as a father, when she realizes the hypocrisy and sin of my heart. I hope that God will give her the understanding and compassion to know that I’m doing the best that I can and despite my shortcomings, I could still point her to Christ and teach her about the perfect love of our Heavenly Father.
