Max Lucado – Not a Blank Slate But a Written Book

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

Each year God gives millions of parents a gift—a brand-new baby. God pre-wired your infant. He scripted your toddler’s strengths. He set your teen on a trajectory. God gave you an eighteen-year research project. What sets this child apart?  You see, childhood tendencies forecast adult abilities. Read them. Discern them. Affirm them. Cheerlead them!

Even Jesus displayed an earthly bent.  Where did Joseph and Mary locate their lost twelve-year-old?  In the temple listening to the teachers and asking them questions.  Did this early interest play out later in life?  By all means. Even his enemies referred to him as Rabbi (Matthew 26:49).

Don’t see your child as a blank slate awaiting your pen, but as a written book awaiting your study!
