My wife and I are normal people. Neither of us really excel at anything in particular. We can both figure things out that need figuring, but we are just average at nearly everything we do. Our house is pretty clean, but never perfect. I can fix broken things, but never quite as good as new. We can both cook well enough to enjoy eating, but we're not experts. We're definitely not volunteer doctors touring the world repairing cleft pallets and removing tumors and our super hero skills always fall flat.
So how are two average people changing the world? We're doing it the way countless parents before us have done it. We're raising good kids. Don't get me wrong, they're not perfect and we aren't without challenges as parents, but that's part of what makes us normal. Like other moms and dads everywhere we strive each day to meet the needs of our children. We provide for them, we correct them we encourage them, and we discipline them. Some days we do it better than others, but we never stop trying.
So what's our secret? That part is easy. We share a common foundation built upon biblical truths. It's upon the timeless and unchanging words of scripture that we structure our lives. As Christians, we understand that each of our children will grow up to make their own decisions, but that doesn't change the duty we have to pour ourselves into them while they are young.
As individuals, we may never change the world, but as parents, we could very well be shaping someone who will. When we keep that perspective in mind, we can't help but see ourselves as successful beyond measure.
