The biggest adventure most two year old’s get is a trip to the zoo. But most two year old’s don’t have a missing uncle and a grandmother who does search and rescue work.
So my two year old had a big adventure this week, getting to tag along on a short search. He of course had no idea what they were truly doing, no idea what they were looking for, and thought it simply was a fun walk with women who laughed at his antics (which are many).
Beyond adventure, what he got was the start of a legacy being handed down. A legacy of serving others, with nothing in return for yourself. Serving others, even when no one is looking. I’m thankful that he gets to witness that in action, and has from his earliest days.
I pray that we show him more than tell him how important serving is, so he can pass that legacy on as well. It’s what is right, it’s what we’re called to do. How cool, that he gets to witness it in action from such an early age.
1 Peter 4:10
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
