Daily Devotion: Murphy’s Law for Parenting

Bible Reading: Proverbs 4:1-13

Key Verse: Verse 1 – “Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

Key Words: attend to know understanding

Our key words “attend to know understanding” remind me of what I hear parents say all the time, “Are you listening to me? Pay attention!”

I came across the following ten laws of parenting and thought I would share them with you.
  1. The tennis shoes you must replace today will go on sale next week.
  2. Leak-proof thermoses - will.
  3. The chances of a piece of bread falling with the grape jelly side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet.
  4. The garbage truck will be two doors past your house when the argument over whose day it is to take out the trash ends.
  5. The shirt your child must wear today will be the only one that needs to be washed or mended.
  6. Gym clothes left at school in lockers mildew at a faster rate than other clothing.
  7. The item your child lost, and must have for school within the next ten seconds, will be found in the last place you look. (Tom's note: Isn't something ALWAYS in the last place you look? I mean, you don't keep looking once you've found it, do you?)
  8. Sick children recover miraculously when the pediatrician enters the treatment room.
  9. Refrigerated items, used daily, will gravitate toward the back of the refrigerator.
  10. Your chances of being seen by someone you know dramatically increase if you drive your child to school in your robe and curlers.
Nobody said parenting is easy but hang in there, justice is on its way…”it” is called grandchildren.

What to do:
✞ Keep giving that Godly advice. One day it will connect with your child.
