Consistent faith through the challenges of life is hard. Being a father is as hard. But when you have a sick child, it’s even harder. Especially when your child is at a young age and if they don’t speak yet, it’s hard to figure out where they are hurting.

Saying no to sin; something Bugs Bunny won’t help you with. I love the old Bugs Bunny cartoons, especially the ones with Yosemite Sam. There is this one episode where Bugs and Sam are about to get in a fight. Bugs Bunny drew a line in the sand. He bets hot-headed Yosemite Sam to cross it, and guess what? He did! And not just once.

As one of our pastors said, “Character isn’t made on the mountain peaks – it’s made in the valleys.” How we view failures is critical. Do we become better or bitter? What can we learn from them? How can we improve? How can we help others, as a result? “The righteous falls seven times and rises again.” (Proverbs 24:16)

Deuteronomy 4:9 — “Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. Make them known to your children and your children’s children.”
I had to ask myself what that meant? How is it defined? How is it played out in real life?
