Last week my brother brought his two older boys (ages 9 and 12) to visit for a few days, and David in particular was ecstatic. I was pleased to see their gentleness and patience with all three of my children, especially when their parents were nowhere to enforce or reward such behavior.
I noticed last night David copying the same gentleness and patience with his sisters. The cousins’ behavior made an impression on him. I think we’ll keep those boys around!
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs13:20
Today at church I plan to mention that I am thankful for the behavior I saw last night. I will mention how thankful we are for cousins who love God and His ways.
