What a learning experience, having my teenage grandson live with me.
One of the first lessons has been humility, which has grown my empathy for his parents. I confess to having been judgmental and critical. Walking in their shoes has deepened my dependence on the grace and power of God.
“In his distress he sought the favor of the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers. And when he prayed to him, the Lord was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea… Then (he) knew that the Lord is God.” 2 Chronicles 33:12-13.
