Recently on a visit to the car wash on daddy daughter date night with my little girls. God showed me what it’s like to have your children learn what you teach them. As we drove up to the car wash on the concrete center wall was a pile of change. My oldest daughter Jordin made this Statement. “Look dad God is giving back to us because we give to him!” What an amazing statement of faith to hear from my daughter. That could have been the end of the blessing that I was hearing at the point. But I then asked Jordin what do you think we should do with this money? And again the response rang with a true servant heart. She said ?dad we should give it to the youth kids for camp!” Not I want it for this thing or I want that thing or I want a new toy! Jordin had somebody else on her mind she wanted to be a blessing to others before she wanted something for herself. This act of selflessness real inspired me. The Amount of money we found was only $1.18 but Jordin knew it was enough to make an impact! It made a real impact on me. And as I think on how the words of Jordin moved me I hope they will move others to be more self-less and not selfish. And to live out 2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. As I have tried to teach Jordin the things that I have heard and learned I pray that as she learns from me she will teach others also what she has seen and learned as we serve Jesus Christ!
