Counting the Cost of Following Christ

One of the head rests in our van has a chunk of foam carved out of it. I have never seen a pocket knife in any of my kids' hands and none of my kids sat in that seat the time that it had to have happened. The person that was sitting there during that time was found with a pocket knife, but denies that he did it.

So why would we be spending time with a destructive, lying juvenile? Because that is what God has called us to do. I am not sure how we will handle the situation, but when I see the chunk of missing foam, I will pray for the boy. His salvation is more important than our van headrest.

I aggree, Randi Sue. When we lived in a neighborhood with loads of needy children, we brought them to church with us. It was not always fun but it made a difference in some of the parents' lives. In fact, later after we moved, I ran into on set of parents who decided to take their own children to church after that. They became Christians and were active in the church. What a blessing-though they can also be blessings in disguise sometimes. Great job! Keep it up. Jesus ate with publicans and sinners, too.

UGH. Sounds like you are handling it beautifully so far. It will require wisdom to know where to go from here tho' so I'll pray for that for you.
