Davidisms - You're Always a Parent

When my children were young, someone once said to me, “You’re always a parent.” At the time, it seemed like a strange thing to say. Marilynn and I were focused on the day-to-day care of young children. Nurturing, teaching and disciplining - along with all the other typical things that come with raising kids. But then it hit me - especially as my kids grew up and left home. My role as a parent never ends! The obvious parenting occurs during the first 18 years when children live at home with their parents. But then, they’re off! Into the world to create independent lives. But when parents have built a solid relationship with their kids, they’ll always return home. Seek wise counsel from us. Advice. A shoulder to cry on. A sympathetic ear. It’s one of the ways in which they honor us (Eph. 6:2). We’ll always care for them. And be praying for them, no matter what age they may be! When they continue to have joy or weep, we will as well. That’s because you’re always a parent.
