Q: What is the most difficult part of being a parent?
A: The Kids
What job in the world offers you the opportunity to be a psychiatrist, a spiritual director, a manager, a chef, a servant, a handyman, an advisor, a janitor, a tutor, a dietician, a taxi driver, a detective, a police officer, a prison warden, a counselor, a trainer, a nurse, an activities director, a hazmat specialist, and so many other jobs at once, all coming with terrible hours, even worse pay, and the need to clean up a variety of “personal accidents”? Of course, the answer is parenting. But, if you offer your children real leadership, as opposed to dominance or mere acquiescence, the perks and retirement benefits make it the most worthwhile job in the world.
Every man is called to fatherhood, in one way or another, and every woman is called to motherhood. Both require leading others into the glorious freedom of the children of God. This is your calling, too.
