What Goes Around

Last night at dinner table, my 10 year old son asked to do the Bible reading after our meal. We are reading through Ephesians and have come to chapter 6. It starts this way, "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right." As my son attempted to continue to read, I interrupted him several times asking him to read that first line over again and again. We had a good laugh, him too, as I said, "Ah, that is music to my ears."

But...a little later the Bible says, "And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath." My little obedient and image-bearing son, unprompted, but apparently highly provoked, read this line over again and again to great laughter and a well deserved 'comes around' to dear old dad.
