In an essay written in 1950 by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he wrote, “I guess the influence of my father also had a great deal to do with my going in the ministry. This is not to say that he ever spoke to me in terms of being a minister, but that my admiration for him was the great moving factor; He set forth a noble example that I didn’t mind following.”
What an honor it would be for me if my children could say the same thing one day!
May this desire be yours as well dad. It’s one thing for the kids to follow our path because we coerce them, but it’s completely another for them to choose to follow our example out of desire and nobility.
