Of course it’s not the most important thing that Gumnut needs to learn, I’m far more interested in him growing up to love & serve Jesus. That said, Rugby would be another great point for he & I to bond around.
I’ve heard people speak about Scripture in schools & Bible teaching at home as being “brain washing.” My two questions are this. At what point does something change from being “teaching your children about those things you believe to be true & fundamentally important,” to “brain washing your kids?”
I teach my kids that you don’t pick up snakes in the wild, you should obey your parents & be polite to others, why wouldn’t I teach my kid that it is good to be in a relationship with the God who created him?
Meanwhile, I’ll do what I can to make him a Wallabies supporter, and I suspect he’ll get roped in to being a photographer too….
What’s the passion that you hope your kids will share?
