When our daughter was growing up, there were no mega christian book stores. We had one tiny little christian book store in north Dallas... 'Virginia's'. It was always a treat to go in and browse around.
Carole would save her allowance of nickels and dimes, and she would look through that little store carefully, to pick out the best items that she would later use to 'play Sunday School' with her 2 brothers. One of them was Campus Crusade's 4 spiritual laws glove.
She was serious about teaching them.
They weren't always on board.
I remember one day when she hollered at them for not paying attention in her 'class', after all... she had sacrificed a lot to make this special for them.
Brothers don't always get that.
But even now, all of these years later, those same brothers are also teaching their little ones, and they have never doubted the heart of their sister.
I see my daughter now with her 3 girls, doing the same thing. If those girls have one devotional, they probably have 10. She is teaching them, as she tried to teach her brothers. I think it was probably good training for her to start with her own brothers.
"Pay attention: I'm teaching you the rules and regulations that God commanded me, so that you may live by them in the land you are entering to take up ownership. Keep them. Practice them. You'll become wise and understanding." (Deut.4:5,6)
