James 1 and Teenagers
My teenagers are a gift from God. I know that. I love that. I love my teenagers to the moon and back. It is also a gift that I have the challenge of communicating well with my teenagers. This challenge includes using the right tone of voice at the right time, listening before assuming, and keeping them talking even when it is hard, even when I want to retreat and give up. Before this morning I would have never considered this challenge a gift. To me, it was more like a season I must endure or another area of my life that broadcasts my weaknesses to those I love the most. So this morning I smiled as I read James 1 in the message. It was just like God was speaking directly to me in this season.
