Max Lucado – Resist the Urge to Label Your Children

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

At the age of two, master pianist Van Cliburn played a song on the piano while listening to teaching in the adjacent room.  His mother noticed his skill and began giving him daily piano lessons.  The little kid from Kilgore, Texas, won the First International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow. Why? In part because a parent noticed an aptitude and helped a child develop it.

What gives your child satisfaction and pleasure?  Of course, what thrills one person bothers another. The apostle Peter liked to keep the boat steady while the apostle Paul was prone to rock it. So, resist the urge to label before you study. Attend carefully to the unique childhood of your child. What story do you read in your children? Uncommon are the parents who attempt to learn—and are blessed by their children.
