Can we wrestle for a few minutes?
My 6-year-old son is ready for bed. I have other things I need to get to. But just that day, I had written in my journal, I need to wrestle with Noah more. Make this a priority.
Its amazing to me how often I encounter this moment of decision: meor family? Do what I need to do (or just want to do)or devote my time to my children or my wife?
This moment is a critical one. And for a husband and dad, it happens every day. What you do in that moment is more consequential than you probably realize.
Our natural tendency is to make the selfish choice. That is the number one thing that holds us back from being better husbands and fathers. What is more, it contradicts the role God gave us men to fill in the lives of our wives and children.
