“Daddy, I love you.” *silence* “Daddy, I love you!”
” I love you too buddy.”
“I told you this many times. Two. You didn’t say yours first time. Why?”
The above was a short conversation I had with my four year old son this morning. The conversation was very short but had a very strong impact on me. Kids want to know that they are loved.
My post will be as short as this conversation, but I hope it will also have a strong impact and will spark some conversation.
How do you show kids that you love them? The room may be packed, or it may only have a handful of kids, but it is still our responsibility to show each and every child that they are loved and appreciated. My goal is to never get so caught up in the experience (does the room look right, is the game cool enough or am I cool enough) that I forget what it is all about. Our purpose is to show each and every child that they are not only loved by us, but by a great God that loves them so much and has great plans for them.
So how do you do it? How do you show each child that they are loved?
