My oldest heads off to drivers education class this week. And what a relief that is. Teaching a opinionated young man to drive a speeding bullet is much more stressful than I ever imagined. It’s pretty nice to be able to outsource a little bit of the finer details of this education to someone who must have nerves of steel! Seriously, just imagine if your job was to drive around in a compact car with first time drivers all day long!
Of course, what I really dread about this, is that when he comes home with all this new knowledge in hand, I have a strong feeling that my driving will be uses as a place for him to critic and test the value of what he has learned. I would love to say “do as I say, but not as I do boy!” But for some reason, I don’t think that will fly… Just like it doesn’t in other parts of life.
6 Always remember these commands I give you today.7 Teach them to your children, and talk about them when you sit at home and walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 New Century Version (NCV)
