Upside Down by Aneeta Pearson

A few days ago, while searching for a popular book, our children turned our home library upside down. My husband almost had a cow seeing his extensive (and expensive) collection of law books scattered on the floor.

Him:

Together we reshelved the books after experiencing  a ‘parent life’ moment. The Republic, The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with the President, The City of GodThe Wealth of Nations, The First Urban Christians: The Social World of the Apostle Paul, The Norton Anthology of World Masterpieces, The Oxford History of the Biblical World, Bulfinch’s Mythology, and Four Tragedies, are just a few titles of the large and diverse collection of books we own.

Me:
“Look at these titles…our kids will think we are boring, if not already,” I said, smiling as I reshelved our son’s book, Rocket Science for the Rest of Us.

Him:
“Its okay if they think we are boring. They will thank us later. Besides, as Christians, we (our family) should not shy away from knowledge. Likewise, it is important that we study the Bible and live by its truth so that we can be an effective witness for Jesus. Understanding knowledge creates dialogue and allows us to meet people where they are in life in the event of witnessing.”

Me:
“Yeah, I agree. ‘Scare-witnessing’ to people about Jesus is definitely not the way to go. So, do you think we are cool parents?”

Him:

“I’m the coolest parent ever! Are you?”
