A couple of weeks ago, I heard a reference to the book, "No, David!" If you have kids, or if you work with them, you've probably heard of it. It's a story about a little boy who gets into everything and how his mom corrects him all the time. I thought about how I do that with my 15-month-old Jack. Whether he is trying to eat the dog food, stand on the furniture, or unplug things from outlets, I seem to say, "No, Jack," quite a bit.
I was at a church meeting the other day, and someone asked how Jack was doing. I said he was getting big and that he's becoming very ornery and getting into everything. The person then said to me, "Not much different than us?" I chuckled and agreed with him, but I immediately began to think about that statement in a spiritual sense.
