Davidisms - Faith Is More Caught Than Taught

When I was growing up, I watched my dad go through trials of many kinds. I don’t remember much about the trials. Nor do I remember much of anything he said about them. What I do remember is how he handled them. How dad read his Bible amidst the trials. How he prayed, seeking God for direction. Faithfully. Fervently. Watching him do so made me think, “I want my dad’s faith! It’s real to him! I want what he has!” And I believe that I now have it. I’ve tried to pass this same truth to my kids. I’ve tried to live my faith more than just talk about it. And as I’ve watched their faith grow, I’ve come to realize that faith is more caught than taught. When Jesus called his disciples, he simply said, “Follow me” (Mat. 4:19). He wanted them to do as he did. To emulate him. If you want your kids to follow Jesus, you follow Jesus! Faithfully. Passionately. Unyieldingly. Without fail. Believe me, they are watching as I watched my dad. That’s because faith is more caught than taught.
