My Son

Proverbs 23:24  The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
And he who sires a wise son will be glad in him.

Our son, Seth is preaching at Jefferson Baptist Church this weekend. Tonight as he preached in the Saturday night service I felt very proud of him, and as the verse in Proverbs says, “I greatly rejoiced in the Lord” for the good work He did in the life of Seth.  We all have those “feel good moments” in our life when  someone we are associated with does well. It doesn’t have to be because of something we did well, it can be because we care so much for them that we rejoice over their good character and accomplishment. I always felt so good when the kids played basketball or volleyball well, or when they got good grades, or sang beautifully. But when they demonstrate Christ like character and maturity, and glorify Him by their service it is particularly rewarding.
