New Life Daily Devotion – March 23

Child Readiness

The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him. – Proverbs 23:24
Do you think you’re ready to have kids? Or maybe you wonder if your kids are ready for kids. Here are a few tests to see just how ready you are:
The first one is The Grocery Store Test:
Borrow two small animals (goats are probably the best) and take them with you to the store.  Always keep them in sight and pay for anything they eat or damage.
The next is The Dressing Test:  
Obtain one large, unhappy, live octopus. Stuff it into a small bag making sure that all the arms stay inside.
Then there’s The Toy Test:
Obtain a 55-gallon box of LEGOs. Have a friend spread them all over the house. Put on a blindfold. Try to walk to the bathroom at night without stepping on any. And don’t scream because this would wake the children.
Not only is parenting challenging, but with the right attitude it’s also fun, funny, and exciting.  And, with the right attitude, it will keep a youthful spirit about you.
