The reasons why I talk to our sons about my beliefs is to allow them a peek into what my character is, where I come from; and hopefully where I want to be in the future. Most of the time when it comes to ideals or beliefs; I let my sons work things out for themselves. However, I do believe I must teach or guide them in their paths to become honorable men and in this I am a servant. The other day we had an interesting conversation that kinda went like this:
Why do you stop to make sure others are okay on the side of the road?
Answer: 'Because I was taught you never know where Jesus or God is. Perhaps he is testing my learning as a child by waiting to see if I will do as I was taught to help others in need.'
What happens if they want to rob or kill you?
'The way I see that scenario is perhaps; it is God's way of calling me home to be with Him while, I am following my gut to help. Just maybe; he wants to see if I am afraid to follow or deny my beliefs. Yes, it is possible I may die but, there is also a chance I may not get to another opportunity meet my maker. If I ignore the 'call' or 'opportunity to serve,' will I hear his vioce again?
Now this line of reasoning and blind belief may be crazy to some. Heck even my husband doesn't subscribe to my point of veiw. Yet, I am a servant and will always be so. I am here to help others or to teach; that is my calling and I accept this. I not crazy enough though to allow strangers into my vehicle if I am alone or with our sons but, I always have a cell phone to offer. Most of the time, these strangers just wave me on so; I just get peace of mind they will not be left stranded. What I do want my sons to understand; you may be afraid of the wolf but, never stop being a person of faith and living.
I leave ya'll with this quote:
"He who is not a good servant shall not be a good master."
