FATHER-SON A REVERSAL

My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your heart to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding. Pro. 2:1-2, NKJV

When my oldest son Tom was a young child, my wife and I made most of the decisions concerning his future. It was our job and duty as parents to make these types of decisions. We decided where we would live, how we would spend our vacations, how medical situations should be addressed, and where our children should be educated.

Now more than six decades have passed, and our son, a medical doctor, has gained a vast amount of experience. This experience enables him to make better decisions and yes, even give me sage advice. Some examples he’s offered to us, include advice on travel, computer help, finances, vacations, medical challenges, and home management. Even though I have taken excellent advice from him, I am still his father and he is still my son. But in recent years I have come to appreciate his wisdom and maturity more and more.

When he was a child I led my son

By God’s wisdom and having fun.

Now he is a man of many years

Able to help and calm my fears.

With increasing years I am moving to role reversal with my son.
