Scott talks about the “how to” of developing humility.
I wrote a few days ago about lessons that I learned when my mom was diagnosed with Leukemia. Of course, when I say I “learned” them, it’s not as if I didn’t have head knowledge of everything I said before her diagnosis. If you asked me, “Is life precious,” I would have answered, “of course!” I knew it. But did I appreciate it?
I said in that post that I would write some ways you can maximize your life. How to make the most of your time is a big topic, so I’m going to break this into several posts.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and granddads! As you know, today is very special to me because I have such a passion for fatherhood and for seeing men operate in the role that God has designed for them.
William Wordsworth said, “Father! – to God himself we cannot give a holier name.” How right he is. There is no more sacred or powerful office in the world than that of a father. Fathers shape societies, because as the family goes, so goes the society, and so goes the world. When we look back on history, the civilizations that flourished had strong multigenerational thinking and children were not so much taught as they were given examples to live by. Men lived and had their children walk with them through life. Men modeled what it meant to be a strong, honorable, upstanding person.
