Humble Pie

One of the things I’ve found as a parent…




…is that you may find yourself having to say you’re sorry. Often. A lot.



At least you should be saying it when you need to.



I admit that I find this difficult at times. It goes against everything in me to openly share my failures, my weakness…and really what it boils down to is my sin.



…where I’ve missed the mark.





However, that being said, one of the greatest things we can model for our children is a humble spirit. One that is willing to admit wrongs. One that is courageous enough to say I didn’t do what I should have this time. I made a mistake & I apologize. I take full responsibility for my actions.





I believe that goes MUCH farther than many a ‘teaching’ session ever will take them.



So…next time you fail in front of them, or in a situation that involves them…



Let’s take the ‘low road’ and offer our apologies.



I’m sure they’ll thank us; even if it’s one day far off!
