Parent Connection February 27th

It’s Better to be Cautious…
          Over the weekend, we had some workers in the building patching some leftover nail and screw holes in preparation for some final painting that needs to be done. While they were working in my classroom, I asked the worker about a hole up in the corner that he seemed to be avoiding. He said that he would have to ask his supervisor about it. He pointed out that there were some loose wires in the hole and that he wasn’t going to mess with the hole because of a previous experience.  
          It seems that while working on an earlier job he was patching a similar hole and the wires had made contact with a ring he was wearing and the electricity in those wires knocked him off of the ladder he was on. Now he had set his mind on not messing around with any loose wires. He said he had learned his lesson.
          As we go through life, we have many lessons to learn. You have learned many of those lessons already. Some of these lessons are easy to learn and others can be learned in a painful way. As parents, we will want to help our children learn these lessons the easier way to save them from experiencing the painful lessons if possible. The greatest lessons our children need are those involving our relationship with our God because those lessons will last for eternity, as well as the consequences of not learning them.
