Tonight at dinner my eight year old son Bradon told me that he and his best friend Alex, another Pastor’s kid, were going to work together and plant churches when they grow up. (Apparently they had some sort of prayer meeting at school today.) I’m so proud.
And I don’t know if God will call Bradon to plant churches or not… but it is an exciting thought.
Although I wouldn’t wish the stresses and challenges of pastoral life on anyone, the rewards of obeying God far outweigh the difficulties of being an elder in the church.
I will continue to pray that Jesus have His Will with my children. And Steph and I will raise them to obey Christ regardless of the cost…
