I’ve been resisting the desire to write about potty training, because it’s such a non-spiritual issue. Or is it?
Today, Bethel didn’t want to sit on the potty. I’m certain that the problem is a lack of success, and the perceived difficulty of the task. If I can get her to actually stay on the potty, she’ll go, but it takes a long time. I’m trying to decide how much to push her (and truly, that really depends on how tired I am feeling, or how much clutter is around the house). So I started to think about how this struggle of hers could be addressed biblically.
Guess it depends on the motives, but avoiding difficult tasks seems like a spiritual issue. Be not weary in well doing. Ummm…. trying to think of other biblical principles that apply. How does not giving up glorify God?
So what verses/ principles do I think of when I’m facing a difficult task? Maybe I can talk about that.
