New Life Daily Devotion – January 4

Raising Kids

I’m Steve Arterburn with a New Life Moment.

Looking for an alternative approach to adult education? Try raising kids! You’ll learn important like this:

·         A king size waterbed contains enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house about 4 inches deep.

·         When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh oh,” it’s already too late.

·         A ceiling fan isn’t strong enough to rotate a 42-pound-boy clad in Batman underwear and Superman cape hanging by a dog leash. It is able, however, to spin a paint can quickly enough to splash paint on all four walls of a room.

·         Super glue is forever.

·         VCR’s don’t eject “Peanut butter and jelly” sandwiches, and.

·         Garbage bags don’t make good parachutes.

If you’re a parent, or have kids in your life, enjoy the daily adventures, even if it means time and energy you didn’t budget for the moment.
