Confessions of a Christian Curmudgeon: #dadlife

Posted on Nov 25, 2018

I’m not the best dad in the world. Not even on my block, I’m sure. It really pains me to say this, but I don’t spend enough quality time with my girls. Now, I spend half my week at home working on church related tasks. Great, right!? You’d think. But sometimes I can be dismissive of my kids. While I’m in the middle of an email, writing my sermon, or even this post, I almost ignore them or at best lose my patience.  They don’t deserve that. They are amazing and deserve more. I can’t be too hard on myself though, because I am very blessed to be able work from home. And we do have precious times of watching movies and American Ninja Warrior together.  However, it certainly can be better. Scripture teaches that kids are gifts from God. But am I a gift to my kids? Ugh. Well writing that didn’t feel great. My prayer then is that God would grow me out of my self-centeredness in order to be the man and father my girls deserve.
