My soon to be seven year old came skipping into the kitchen and plops himself down and stated matter-of-factly, “Daddy, I’ll think I’ll make a pretty good pastor someday.”
That caught my interest so i asked, “Why is that?”
His answer was priceless: “Well, I can read the Bible really well and…I sing pretty good too!” If only that were all there was…
I believe this demonstrates the power of the church community. Andrew read the Bible for worship a few months back (February I think, on Cub Scout Sunday) and not just that Sunday but for several weeks after he heard from people how well he read the Bible that Sunday morning.
Apparently it stayed on his mind enough for his nearly seven year old brain to process it over and over enough to come to his stated conclusion.
I am impressed that he is discovering something about himself that he believes (and is supported by his church family to believe) he can do well and it includes a very important area of life.
