The children played on their own while I cleaned the house. I had to stop and observe for a little bit when I saw my oldest “cooked” and “served” food to his brother. He filled a bowl with “food” and placed it on the table. Then he had him sit right next to him. After this command, he held hands with him and told him that they have to pray for the food. He uttered this prayer: “Dear God, thank you for this food. Amen.”
How delightful it was for me to see this. As we go about each day doing the seemingly mundane and uninteresting tasks, the children are watching and learning. I’m reminded that my duties and sometimes burdensome work are not in vain. Once again I’m reminded of Galatians 6:9:
Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
