So my challenge to everyone on sunday was to live everyday this week with God. No one-time-sunday-for-show Christianity allowed anymore. But I must be honest: today, I woke up in an extremely grumpy mood (which was largely my own fault for staying up too late). I was dousing my hyper-anal grumpiness all over my sons this morning. And then, they both ganged up, called me to account and scolded me: "Dad, you are a grumpy man!"
I was stunned. "I am so sorry, guys," I said to them. We all hugged and then wrestled for a few minutes. And we prayed together. I asked God to renew my heart today and help me show his love better than I had been doing so far this morning.
It’s not easy, but living everyday for God can be done when others hold you to it.
