When I met these two girls about four years ago, I knew two things:
- They are thieves. They love to take your heart and never give it back.
- They love the Bible.
If you know me, I have many kids. But none of my kids had that spark, that interest… that proclivity that these two girls had in the word of God.
From the moment, I met them I knew that I would give them every ounce of theological and doctrinal training, every note, every book, every podcast, every video that I had not just simply to raise preachers and pastors—although that is a small part of it.
I would train them up so that they would know that we can and do worship God through our intellect. Some people worship God in song or being in the midst of nature. I want them to know it is way more than okay to worship God with fully engaging your mind as well as your heart.
To see them thrive and grow in their thinking and engaging with God and others over the last few years has been a complete joy for me.
Praise God and amen.
