It’s not fun to be the LOSER of the Super Bowl. Are you or your kids feeling too much of the society’s “I don’t measure up” judgments? Try out this antidote to not measuring up.
“The prodigal son – a miserable loser in society’s and his own eyes] arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate.” Luke 15:20-24 ESV
The Prodigal Son’s dad was prolific in grace and generous in affirmation! Are we? Parents, mentors and managers have much power to recalibrate a battered attitude and lift a discouraged soul. Are you paying careful attention to the countenance, circumstances and spirit of your spouse, kids or teammates? Is there a risk to valuing, honoring and encouraging someone who’s not feeling like a winner?
Parents, mentors and managers have much power to recalibrate a battered attitude and lift a discouraged soul.
Have a chat at dinner, bedtime, on the phone or in the car with someone special to you that needs to hear that they are a winner. Affirm that they have a ton to offer, and they’re loved unconditionally. Remind them of their best traits and what they mean to you. Make it clear what God has done to love and affirm them as His cherished kid. Celebrate them.
