That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” - Titus 2:4,5
I heard this story last week at a conference we were in and wanted to share it with you. We know an older couple who just started a church like ours in a neighboring town. They are former missionaries who had to come back home to take care some medical issues with family. Well, they have a son and daughter in law (a white couple) who cannot have children; so they have decided to adopt. Thus far they have adopted one Black young boy (age three) who is just so adorable. They are in the process of adopting a little Asian boy as well. Sometimes when you adopt you get children with interesting habits. This little boy has one that I think is HILARIOUS. One day as the mom was getting the little boy out of the car seat and getting ready to go into Wal-mart he started helling, "HELP!, HELP!, HELP!" at the top of his lungs. She finally got him to calm down and the day went on with no other hiccups; but the next time they went shopping he did the same thing, "HELP!, HELP!, HELP!". (Keep in mind that this is a White parent with a Black son.) She said she finally had to start spanking him for doing that. She has also now decided to start carrying around her proof of adoption papers with her just in case.
