  • 00:00:03.030 --> 00:00:04.030
  • 00:00:04.210 --> 00:00:14.200
  • 00:00:14.260 --> 00:00:24.190
  • 00:00:24.260 --> 00:00:26.200
  • Chris Shook: I am so happy to see you, and I've really been
  • 00:00:27.190 --> 00:00:31.050
  • looking forward to this because we are in this great series
  • 00:00:31.060 --> 00:00:36.260
  • called "Family Camp" and learning all about
  • 00:00:36.270 --> 00:00:39.130
  • relationships, and how does that work,
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:41.170
  • and what does it look like.
  • 00:00:41.180 --> 00:00:43.150
  • And I want you to take a look at this awesome wood-sided station
  • 00:00:43.160 --> 00:00:47.100
  • wagon behind me because I'm proud to say that my family
  • 00:00:47.110 --> 00:00:52.130
  • actually owned a wood-sided station wagon back in the day
  • 00:00:52.140 --> 00:00:56.160
  • and that is what we took family trips in.
  • 00:00:56.170 --> 00:00:59.200
  • That's what we did when we took a family vacation.
  • 00:00:59.210 --> 00:01:02.150
  • And I particularly remember this one vacation we went on and
  • 00:01:02.160 --> 00:01:07.150
  • it was my mom, my dad, my two sisters, my grandma,
  • 00:01:07.160 --> 00:01:11.070
  • and my grandpa, all in the car together.
  • 00:01:11.080 --> 00:01:14.020
  • And my spot was riding between my dad and grandpa on the bench
  • 00:01:14.030 --> 00:01:18.150
  • front seat, and they both chain smoked the whole way, you know,
  • 00:01:18.160 --> 00:01:23.250
  • with the window down just a little bit, you know, maybe
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:26.170
  • an inch or so, but we didn't think anything of that.
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:29.220
  • And most of the three up there was a big map unfolded in my lap
  • 00:01:29.230 --> 00:01:33.100
  • between them because that's what you needed.
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:36.160
  • You had to see your way.
  • 00:01:36.170 --> 00:01:38.040
  • That was the only way to find out where to go if you were
  • 00:01:38.050 --> 00:01:41.120
  • going into unfamiliar, uncharted territory.
  • 00:01:41.130 --> 00:01:44.210
  • And so, that's what it looked like for me back then.
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:48.230
  • And now, family vacations look different.
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:52.190
  • When we take a car trip, all of a sudden now,
  • 00:01:52.200 --> 00:01:55.240
  • everybody has their own phone or iPad.
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:58.210
  • They have a way to entertain themselves.
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:01.020
  • And there's GPS that's always telling you where to go.
  • 00:02:01.030 --> 00:02:04.260
  • And my personal favorite new thing that we didn't have
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:08.160
  • back in the day is that I can use reviews before we go,
  • 00:02:08.170 --> 00:02:15.070
  • that's what I do.
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:16.210
  • I look at reviews and you find out where to go, what are
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:20.090
  • the good things to see, where are--where are the things
  • 00:02:20.100 --> 00:02:23.160
  • that you can skip and you don't really need to see it all.
  • 00:02:23.170 --> 00:02:27.110
  • And most importantly, what to pack and what not to pack
  • 00:02:27.120 --> 00:02:30.270
  • because I hate when I get on vacation and
  • 00:02:30.280 --> 00:02:34.240
  • I realize I bought a bunch of stuff I didn't need
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:37.250
  • and I'm lugging it around everywhere.
  • 00:02:37.260 --> 00:02:40.260
  • I also hate it when I go somewhere and
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:43.080
  • I don't have what I need.
  • 00:02:43.090 --> 00:02:45.050
  • And so, I'm left trying to cover every contingency
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:48.190
  • before we head out the door.
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:51.030
  • But thanks to reviews, I don't have to do that anymore.
  • 00:02:51.040 --> 00:02:54.050
  • I don't have to wonder, I just look at the people who have
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:57.080
  • already said, who have been there, the people who have
  • 00:02:57.090 --> 00:03:00.110
  • already traveled the path, and I look to them
  • 00:03:00.120 --> 00:03:03.110
  • to see what to do.
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:04.210
  • Now, I want to admit right now that I am a horrible person
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:08.010
  • because I use reviews extensively, and
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:12.080
  • I hardly ever write them.
  • 00:03:12.090 --> 00:03:14.090
  • And I use the information you put down for my good
  • 00:03:14.100 --> 00:03:18.130
  • and then I fail to actually write reviews myself.
  • 00:03:18.140 --> 00:03:22.090
  • I've always felt kind of guilty about that.
  • 00:03:22.100 --> 00:03:24.220
  • But here I am in church and so I thought maybe I could atone
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:29.050
  • for that by saying a little-- telling you a little review of
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:33.230
  • motherhood letting you know, okay, I have traveled this path,
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:38.280
  • and this is what I see or the things that I should have
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:44.000
  • brought, and the things that I should have left behind.
  • 00:03:44.010 --> 00:03:48.000
  • You know, I've learned a lot through the years.
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:49.280
  • Kerry and I have four children, they're all adults now.
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:53.090
  • They are married and now I'm getting to see this whole
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:56.260
  • journey through the eyes of our kids as they
  • 00:03:56.270 --> 00:03:59.240
  • raise their own children.
  • 00:03:59.250 --> 00:04:01.270
  • And it's really interesting to see, but I'm hoping that I can
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:06.240
  • save you a little time, a little frustration and this
  • 00:04:06.250 --> 00:04:10.230
  • is not because I did it all right, that is for sure.
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:14.220
  • I have found that the best, most useful reviews, when I read
  • 00:04:14.230 --> 00:04:18.100
  • a review, are not the ones that are all positive and glowing,
  • 00:04:18.110 --> 00:04:22.090
  • and not the ones that are all negative.
  • 00:04:22.100 --> 00:04:25.040
  • They're the ones that are honest.
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:26.290
  • They're the ones that just tell it like it is.
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:29.160
  • "Hey, this is some good stuff, and this part over here,
  • 00:04:29.170 --> 00:04:32.290
  • this was tough."
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.160
  • And so, that's what I hope to do for you today.
  • 00:04:34.170 --> 00:04:37.130
  • And one thing I want to make sure that you understand
  • 00:04:37.140 --> 00:04:41.150
  • that I took a while to realize is that you don't have
  • 00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:45.010
  • to give birth to be a mom.
  • 00:04:45.020 --> 00:04:47.170
  • You just don't have to give birth to be a mom.
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:49.040
  • There are lots of ways that you can fall into that role
  • 00:04:49.050 --> 00:04:53.230
  • of getting to guide someone behind you,
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:57.160
  • someone who's not quite as far along on the path,
  • 00:04:57.170 --> 00:05:00.110
  • getting to guide them and share what you've learned.
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:03.030
  • And so, there's fostering. There is adopting.
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:06.110
  • There is finding someone maybe in the children's ministry,
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:10.260
  • in the student ministry, in the preschool ministry, jumping
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:14.070
  • in and serving and getting to be a part of that.
  • 00:05:14.080 --> 00:05:18.030
  • But I want to encourage you that whatever stage of life you're
  • 00:05:18.040 --> 00:05:20.220
  • in, and whether you are single or married, go ahead and
  • 00:05:20.230 --> 00:05:26.090
  • look actively for those that you can speak into their lives.
  • 00:05:26.100 --> 00:05:31.130
  • You can be that role of a mom, that role of someone just up
  • 00:05:31.140 --> 00:05:34.150
  • ahead on the trail, no matter where you're at right now.
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:38.000
  • So, let's stand and we're going to read God's Word together.
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:43.170
  • And our key passage is in Romans 12, verses 1 and 2.
  • 00:05:44.050 --> 00:05:48.230
  • So, just follow along as I read this.
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:50.200
  • "So here's what I want you to do, God helping you:
  • 00:05:51.210 --> 00:05:54.240
  • Take your everyday, ordinary life, your sleeping, eating,
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:05:59.230
  • going-to-work, and walking-around life,
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:03.050
  • and place it before God as an offering.
  • 00:06:03.060 --> 00:06:05.230
  • Embracing what God does for you is the best
  • 00:06:05.240 --> 00:06:08.270
  • thing you can do for him.
  • 00:06:08.280 --> 00:06:11.020
  • Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit
  • 00:06:11.030 --> 00:06:14.120
  • into it without even thinking.
  • 00:06:14.130 --> 00:06:16.150
  • Instead, fix your attention on God.
  • 00:06:16.160 --> 00:06:19.140
  • You'll be changed from the inside out.
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:21.280
  • Readily recognize what he wants from you,
  • 00:06:21.290 --> 00:06:24.150
  • and quickly respond to it.
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:26.140
  • Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:29.090
  • to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you,
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:34.240
  • develops well-formed maturity in you."
  • 00:06:34.250 --> 00:06:38.250
  • Okay, so let's take a look at this.
  • 00:06:39.250 --> 00:06:42.090
  • We're gonna look at what we can safely leave behind and
  • 00:06:42.100 --> 00:06:45.290
  • what we actually need for this journey of parenting,
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:49.120
  • the journey of motherhood.
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:51.090
  • Now, the first thing is that we need to pack, and I have
  • 00:06:51.100 --> 00:06:55.190
  • a suitcase here so this can be super clear to you.
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:59.020
  • And we need to pack more small traditions,
  • 00:06:59.030 --> 00:07:05.010
  • more small traditions.
  • 00:07:05.020 --> 00:07:06.220
  • But to make room for that, we're gonna have to give up
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:10.170
  • some of the time we spend on big occasions.
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:14.150
  • So, I'm getting rid of that, keeping the small traditions.
  • 00:07:14.160 --> 00:07:18.210
  • Now, big occasions aren't all bad, don't get me wrong.
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:22.170
  • But this is how it's gone in my life.
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:25.250
  • I thought, I really thought this, that the big things were
  • 00:07:25.260 --> 00:07:30.060
  • the birthdays, the day you have the party.
  • 00:07:30.070 --> 00:07:33.130
  • I thought the big things were the graduations, the vacations,
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:37.160
  • the big moments in life where a lot of people
  • 00:07:37.170 --> 00:07:40.100
  • come together and celebrate.
  • 00:07:40.110 --> 00:07:42.050
  • And so, I spent a lot of time always looking
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:46.100
  • to the next big occasion.
  • 00:07:46.110 --> 00:07:48.210
  • What's the next thing coming up?
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:50.200
  • Better get ready for that, better do that well.
  • 00:07:50.210 --> 00:07:53.260
  • Here is one of the surprises that I found.
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:57.200
  • Maybe you already knew this, but it turns out that
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:59.220
  • big things are the little things, and the little
  • 00:07:59.230 --> 00:08:01.270
  • things are the big things.
  • 00:08:01.280 --> 00:08:03.250
  • I wish someone had told me that because I really didn't know,
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:07.030
  • and it took a long time for me to figure it out that
  • 00:08:07.040 --> 00:08:10.230
  • the big things are the little things.
  • 00:08:10.240 --> 00:08:12.250
  • In Deuteronomy 6, verses 6 and 7, Scripture tells us,
  • 00:08:12.260 --> 00:08:16.220
  • "And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:19.160
  • these commands that I am giving you today.
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:21.250
  • Repeat them again and again to your children.
  • 00:08:21.260 --> 00:08:24.160
  • Talk about them when you're at home and when you're on the
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:27.030
  • road, when you're going to bed, when you're getting up."
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:30.200
  • Talk about them every day, sleeping, rising, throughout
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:36.030
  • the day, when you go to bed, over and over and over.
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:39.230
  • That repetition, that daily dose of repetition is actually
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:43.180
  • what's needed for the big things.
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:46.160
  • Now, I love to celebrate, I still do.
  • 00:08:46.170 --> 00:08:49.030
  • I love to have the big parties, and the big fun,
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:52.020
  • and do the big fun things.
  • 00:08:52.030 --> 00:08:53.280
  • It's just that now I realized that I don't have to spend
  • 00:08:53.290 --> 00:08:57.120
  • all my energy and effort and time on that.
  • 00:08:57.130 --> 00:09:01.170
  • Sure, do it, but just have your celebration understanding that,
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:07.150
  • you know, when your kid walks across the stage for graduation,
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:11.070
  • that's not the big moment.
  • 00:09:11.080 --> 00:09:13.150
  • The big moment was actually all those other tiny
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:16.170
  • little times that made the graduation ceremony possible.
  • 00:09:16.180 --> 00:09:22.200
  • So, if you want to celebrate something, hey, make your kid
  • 00:09:22.210 --> 00:09:26.220
  • cookies one night at 11:30 when they're up studying.
  • 00:09:26.230 --> 00:09:30.020
  • Don't save it all for the big moment, "Oh, when you graduate,"
  • 00:09:30.030 --> 00:09:33.100
  • because that moment everything else is already done.
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:36.240
  • All the small moments have already then been poured in.
  • 00:09:36.250 --> 00:09:39.110
  • Don't just wait to celebrate when you go on vacation like,
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:43.020
  • "All year long, I'm just gonna grind it out at work.
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:45.150
  • You know, it's tough, I hate it, but I've got
  • 00:09:45.160 --> 00:09:47.110
  • that one week of vacation."
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:49.250
  • Hey, the other 51 weeks of the year are where you live.
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:54.020
  • That's life, and so enjoy those times.
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:57.040
  • Sure, do your family times.
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:09:59.130
  • Pile in the car, go on a family road trip, but
  • 00:09:59.140 --> 00:10:02.180
  • just know that that doesn't define your life.
  • 00:10:02.190 --> 00:10:06.010
  • Don't let your life be defined by the things
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:08.280
  • that seem like they're big.
  • 00:10:08.290 --> 00:10:12.110
  • The actual real big things in life happen when we have rumpled
  • 00:10:12.120 --> 00:10:16.160
  • clothes and our hair sticking up, you have coffee breath.
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:20.020
  • It's the everyday stuff of life, that's where
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:23.000
  • the big moments happen.
  • 00:10:23.010 --> 00:10:24.160
  • female announcer: Still to come with Pastor Kerry Shook.
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:27.160
  • Chris: God can protect his own reputation.
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:30.090
  • He doesn't need me at all.
  • 00:10:30.100 --> 00:10:32.130
  • 00:10:32.290 --> 00:10:40.150
  • announcer: Kerry Shook Ministries is committed

  • Instagram, and YouTube.
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:36.080
  • Your participation will carry
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:38.020
  • the light of Christ into the world.
  • 00:11:38.030 --> 00:11:40.140
  • Chris: Well, the next thing we want to do is to pack more
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:46.200
  • togetherness, so putting more togetherness in,
  • 00:11:46.210 --> 00:11:51.010
  • we're gonna pack that.
  • 00:11:51.020 --> 00:11:52.160
  • But to do that, we've gotta take out some of the junk we didn't
  • 00:11:52.170 --> 00:11:55.160
  • need to have and that would be perfection.
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:58.100
  • So, we can get rid of a lot of the perfection, chuck that,
  • 00:11:58.110 --> 00:12:03.160
  • and patent more togetherness.
  • 00:12:03.170 --> 00:12:05.290
  • 1 Peter 4:9 says this, "Most of all, love each
  • 00:12:06.000 --> 00:12:10.060
  • other as if your life depended on it.
  • 00:12:10.070 --> 00:12:13.060
  • Love makes up for practically anything."
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:16.290
  • Now, nothing would--you wouldn't have to make up for anything
  • 00:12:17.000 --> 00:12:20.040
  • if there wasn't something wrong in the first place but
  • 00:12:20.050 --> 00:12:22.150
  • the truth is, we all make mistakes, we all mess up.
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:25.130
  • And so, we need to admit that and just embrace it together,
  • 00:12:25.140 --> 00:12:31.220
  • just step into it.
  • 00:12:31.230 --> 00:12:33.120
  • It's really easy to pretend that things are perfect, or fine,
  • 00:12:33.130 --> 00:12:38.170
  • or is not a problem, there's not an issue, so
  • 00:12:38.180 --> 00:12:41.130
  • that we don't have to deal with it.
  • 00:12:41.140 --> 00:12:43.220
  • If you acknowledge a problem, then it's kind of sitting there,
  • 00:12:43.230 --> 00:12:46.220
  • "Oh, I guess I need to say something about that."
  • 00:12:46.230 --> 00:12:49.170
  • But if you act like everything's perfect, you can just
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:51.220
  • sail along and go, "Oh, I didn't know anything about that.
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:54.120
  • That's why I didn't get into that messy conversation."
  • 00:12:54.130 --> 00:12:57.020
  • But if you will stop trying to be perfect and just be willing
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:13:02.170
  • to get more real, it will make a huge difference.
  • 00:13:02.180 --> 00:13:05.130
  • This is another big surprise that I learned along the way.
  • 00:13:05.140 --> 00:13:08.240
  • Just own that great role, that high call you have to
  • 00:13:08.250 --> 00:13:12.120
  • be your child's parent.
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:14.080
  • Know that God chose you, specifically you,
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:18.130
  • to be specifically this child's parent.
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:22.240
  • It's not that you're perfect.
  • 00:13:22.250 --> 00:13:24.040
  • It's not that they're perfect, but God put the two of you
  • 00:13:24.050 --> 00:13:27.140
  • together and so, I want you to know, believe in yourself in the
  • 00:13:27.150 --> 00:13:33.190
  • way that God believes in you because God says that
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:37.290
  • with Christ in you, you can do anything,
  • 00:13:38.000 --> 00:13:40.080
  • that you're perfectly pleasing to him.
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:42.130
  • You are wholly accepted and so, rejoice in that, own that.
  • 00:13:42.140 --> 00:13:48.050
  • Say, "Yeah, I'm not gonna, I'm not gonna believe
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:50.100
  • this stuff I see.
  • 00:13:50.110 --> 00:13:51.200
  • Or I'm not gonna compare myself on every level to every person
  • 00:13:51.210 --> 00:13:54.110
  • to literally any person in the world that might have something
  • 00:13:54.120 --> 00:13:58.050
  • to show me," because that's an not what God has for you.
  • 00:13:58.060 --> 00:14:02.260
  • He has something way better.
  • 00:14:02.270 --> 00:14:05.060
  • He has something way better than perfect little packed lunches.
  • 00:14:05.070 --> 00:14:08.180
  • He has something way better than a decorated house.
  • 00:14:08.190 --> 00:14:11.130
  • He has something way better than the latest outfit that's
  • 00:14:11.140 --> 00:14:14.160
  • put together, something way better than the perfect job
  • 00:14:14.170 --> 00:14:16.290
  • that, you know, gets all these awards and recognition.
  • 00:14:17.000 --> 00:14:20.090
  • He has something better for you so hold on,
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:23.250
  • hang on, and wait for it.
  • 00:14:23.260 --> 00:14:26.120
  • So, hang on and know that God is going to take care of you
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:31.200
  • and that you are awesome.
  • 00:14:31.210 --> 00:14:33.290
  • Now, the next thing that we need to pack more of is we're gonna
  • 00:14:34.000 --> 00:14:38.110
  • put in more questions, put in more questions,
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:43.290
  • add more questions to your life.
  • 00:14:44.000 --> 00:14:47.170
  • And the thing we can get rid of that I wish I would have known
  • 00:14:47.180 --> 00:14:50.290
  • is get rid of assumptions, throw those out the window.
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:56.110
  • You aren't gonna need the assumptions along the way.
  • 00:14:56.120 --> 00:14:58.120
  • They're not gonna do you any good at all.
  • 00:14:58.130 --> 00:15:00.190
  • You see, we assume that we know what our kids
  • 00:15:00.200 --> 00:15:03.170
  • are thinking and feeling.
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:05.050
  • We assume we know stuff and that's why we don't ask
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:07.210
  • questions because we think we know it all already.
  • 00:15:07.220 --> 00:15:11.070
  • If I had to do it over again, I would ask so
  • 00:15:11.080 --> 00:15:14.000
  • many more questions.
  • 00:15:14.010 --> 00:15:16.190
  • Ask questions, ask good ones, ask them what's going on
  • 00:15:16.200 --> 00:15:20.110
  • and what's really happening, and how they feel.
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:22.190
  • Don't assume you know, just ask.
  • 00:15:22.200 --> 00:15:26.000
  • And I found one of the best places to do this is carpool.
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:30.130
  • You know, you drive and you just listen.
  • 00:15:30.140 --> 00:15:33.140
  • They think you're in your own little world, but really
  • 00:15:33.150 --> 00:15:35.010
  • you're tuned in, you know what's going on, you listen.
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:37.210
  • You can pick up so much that way.
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:40.100
  • Sorry, kids, for those of you who are here,
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:42.160
  • just a tipoff on that.
  • 00:15:42.170 --> 00:15:45.020
  • And then when you see your kids going through something,
  • 00:15:45.030 --> 00:15:47.080
  • when they're honest, then just share how you handled it.
  • 00:15:47.090 --> 00:15:51.000
  • And it's okay, if you handled it wrong, you know,
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:54.240
  • they can learn from that.
  • 00:15:54.250 --> 00:15:56.220
  • It's a great thing.
  • 00:15:56.230 --> 00:15:58.020
  • I love it when I see parents say, "Hey, I just want you
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:16:01.120
  • to know, I did it this way and it really caused
  • 00:16:01.130 --> 00:16:05.020
  • a lot of pain in my life.
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:06.130
  • That was a mess and so, I'm letting you know this
  • 00:16:06.140 --> 00:16:10.030
  • because I want you to have a better path, because
  • 00:16:10.040 --> 00:16:13.070
  • I really want the best for you.
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:14.240
  • Just be honest about it and your kids, I think you'll find that
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:18.210
  • kids really value, they have a great honesty meter.
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:23.220
  • They can really tell if you're being honest or not and when
  • 00:16:23.230 --> 00:16:25.230
  • you are, when you're being gut-level honest, that really
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:28.250
  • resonates with them and they appreciate it.
  • 00:16:28.260 --> 00:16:30.260
  • Then pray with them about everything.
  • 00:16:30.270 --> 00:16:32.240
  • Risk letting them see God come through, risk that.
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:38.100
  • I didn't always do that.
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:39.210
  • You would think being a pastor's family that I would do that.
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:42.190
  • I'm sorry to disappoint you, but it was really hard to let our
  • 00:16:42.200 --> 00:16:48.100
  • kids pray for something sometimes that I didn't really
  • 00:16:48.110 --> 00:16:52.040
  • know if God was gonna come through on.
  • 00:16:52.050 --> 00:16:54.120
  • Like when our kids were growing up, they wanted a puppy really,
  • 00:16:54.130 --> 00:16:57.070
  • really badly and we held off for years on that because I thought
  • 00:16:57.080 --> 00:17:02.210
  • well, they need to be old enough to really take care of a dog
  • 00:17:02.220 --> 00:17:05.000
  • so we're gonna wait till they're older.
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:06.120
  • So, there'd been a huge build up.
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:08.200
  • We finally get a dog, big, big day.
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:13.000
  • We get a dog, we bring it home, everybody's overjoyed.
  • 00:17:13.010 --> 00:17:16.240
  • You know, this has all their hopes and
  • 00:17:16.250 --> 00:17:18.060
  • dreams combined in this one little puppy.
  • 00:17:18.070 --> 00:17:21.030
  • And the next day, took him to the vet for shots and the
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:23.150
  • vet told me, "This puppy has a congenital heart condition
  • 00:17:23.160 --> 00:17:28.160
  • and he's not gonna make it."
  • 00:17:28.170 --> 00:17:30.210
  • And I said, "What, are you sure?"
  • 00:17:30.220 --> 00:17:33.160
  • Put up the films on the wall, on the light box and said,
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:36.170
  • "Yeah, you know, this is what's going on?
  • 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:39.000
  • You just need to know this is what's about to happen."
  • 00:17:39.010 --> 00:17:41.200
  • And so, really quickly I thought, "What do I do?
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:46.040
  • Where can I find another dog that looks like this?
  • 00:17:46.050 --> 00:17:51.060
  • We haven't had it long, maybe they won't notice."
  • 00:17:51.070 --> 00:17:55.270
  • And then I thought, "Oh God, gosh, why?
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:59.190
  • You know, that's gonna break their hearts.
  • 00:17:59.200 --> 00:18:01.270
  • This is a big, big deal to them."
  • 00:18:01.280 --> 00:18:04.090
  • But we brought the dog home, we were honest,
  • 00:18:04.100 --> 00:18:08.130
  • and just gathered the kids and said, "Listen, we are so sorry,
  • 00:18:08.140 --> 00:18:11.290
  • but this is what the vet said."
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:14.050
  • And I had totally accepted what the vet said and said,
  • 00:18:14.060 --> 00:18:18.060
  • okay, I'm just thinking, "Okay, we're gonna move on from here.
  • 00:18:18.070 --> 00:18:20.110
  • How am I gonna manage this?"
  • 00:18:20.120 --> 00:18:22.230
  • But Stephen said, "Well, let's pray for him,"
  • 00:18:22.240 --> 00:18:26.020
  • and started praying.
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:27.120
  • Well, I'd like to say that my heart welled up with pride
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:30.190
  • because my son, you know, was turning to God first.
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:34.010
  • The truth is I thought, "No, God's gonna let you down."
  • 00:18:34.020 --> 00:18:39.190
  • I thought all the times I've talked to him about God,
  • 00:18:39.200 --> 00:18:42.010
  • and now he's gonna lose his faith over a puppy.
  • 00:18:42.020 --> 00:18:45.140
  • I just, I didn't know what to do.
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:47.110
  • I just thought there's nothing to do.
  • 00:18:47.120 --> 00:18:49.040
  • And Stephen started praying and so, okay.
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:52.010
  • And he prayed, and he prayed, and he prayed, and he prayed,
  • 00:18:52.020 --> 00:18:55.010
  • and we brought the dog back in the next week and they said,
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:59.140
  • "You know, still hanging in there, you know, okay,
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:01.120
  • but this is still happening."
  • 00:19:01.130 --> 00:19:03.080
  • Stephen kept praying, praying, praying, praying,
  • 00:19:03.090 --> 00:19:05.210
  • still happening, you know, this is what's coming.
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:09.000
  • It's 13 years later now, and we still have this dog.
  • 00:19:09.010 --> 00:19:18.010
  • You see, I didn't want to risk God letting Stephen down.
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:27.110
  • I wanted to protect God's reputation.
  • 00:19:27.120 --> 00:19:30.100
  • I wanted to let my kids know that, you know what?
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:33.210
  • This is who God is, and I'm gonna be really careful to make
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:36.210
  • sure that you don't think anything different of him.
  • 00:19:36.220 --> 00:19:39.210
  • Well, here's what I found out,
  • 00:19:39.220 --> 00:19:41.220
  • God can protect his own reputation.
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:44.210
  • He doesn't need me at all.
  • 00:19:44.220 --> 00:19:47.170
  • In fact, I get in the way a lot of times.
  • 00:19:47.180 --> 00:19:50.090
  • Now, the truth is that that story could have
  • 00:19:50.100 --> 00:19:53.210
  • gone differently, you know?
  • 00:19:53.220 --> 00:19:56.050
  • That could have been a totally different story and there have
  • 00:19:56.060 --> 00:19:59.000
  • been plenty times in our kids' lives, and Kerry's and my life,
  • 00:19:59.010 --> 00:20:03.130
  • and our family's life, where we have prayed very, very hard for
  • 00:20:03.140 --> 00:20:07.080
  • something and absolutely got the answer we didn't want.
  • 00:20:07.090 --> 00:20:12.030
  • But how much better to walk that story out with your kids while
  • 00:20:12.040 --> 00:20:15.220
  • they're still in your house, where they still have someone
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:18.060
  • to process that with them?
  • 00:20:18.070 --> 00:20:20.230
  • And you can be honest not saying, "Well, yeah,
  • 00:20:20.240 --> 00:20:22.120
  • the reason God did this is this."
  • 00:20:22.130 --> 00:20:24.220
  • Just say, "Yeah, I don't know either,"
  • 00:20:24.230 --> 00:20:26.180
  • and this really hurts, doesn't it?
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:28.160
  • This really hurts.
  • 00:20:28.170 --> 00:20:30.010
  • I'm hurting too over this, but this doesn't mean
  • 00:20:30.020 --> 00:20:33.200
  • that our God doesn't care.
  • 00:20:33.210 --> 00:20:35.000
  • Let's look together.
  • 00:20:35.010 --> 00:20:36.100
  • Let's watch and see what God does.
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:39.060
  • You know, when there's a hurt, our hearts are hurting,
  • 00:20:39.070 --> 00:20:42.200
  • God finds a way to fill that so let's be on the lookout.
  • 00:20:42.210 --> 00:20:46.000
  • Let's really watch for that. Let's see what he does."
  • 00:20:46.010 --> 00:20:50.040
  • And then the last thing, pack more grace, something that we
  • 00:20:50.050 --> 00:20:54.240
  • need a whole lot of, grace, pack more grace and to do that,
  • 00:20:54.250 --> 00:20:59.050
  • we're gonna get rid of judgment.
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:01.260
  • So, pack more grace, get rid of judgment.
  • 00:21:01.270 --> 00:21:04.290
  • Ephesians 4:31 and 32 says, "Let there be no more resentment,
  • 00:21:06.050 --> 00:21:10.140
  • no more anger or temper, no more violent self-assertiveness,
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:13.210
  • no more slander and no more malicious remarks.
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:16.200
  • Be kind to each other, be understanding.
  • 00:21:16.210 --> 00:21:19.160
  • Be as ready to forgive others as God for Christ's
  • 00:21:19.170 --> 00:21:22.210
  • sake has forgiven you."
  • 00:21:22.220 --> 00:21:24.220
  • The key here is forgiveness.
  • 00:21:24.230 --> 00:21:26.080
  • It's realizing I blow it all the time, so will my child,
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:30.210
  • so will my spouse, so will everybody else,
  • 00:21:30.220 --> 00:21:33.060
  • and I need to give them more grace.
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:36.210
  • And so, for Christ's sake, "let there be no more resentment,
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:40.200
  • no more anger or temper, no more violent self-assertiveness,
  • 00:21:40.210 --> 00:21:43.130
  • no more slander, no more malicious remarks.
  • 00:21:43.140 --> 00:21:45.240
  • Be kind to each other."
  • 00:21:45.250 --> 00:21:47.060
  • The understanding is ready to forgive.
  • 00:21:47.070 --> 00:21:49.190
  • That's what we're gonna do, do what this verse says,
  • 00:21:49.200 --> 00:21:52.180
  • "Be ready to forgive, as Christ is forgiving you."
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:55.130
  • It's hard, but it's worth it.
  • 00:21:55.140 --> 00:21:57.290
  • And then 2 Corinthians we're told,
  • 00:21:58.000 --> 00:22:00.230
  • "Therefore we do not lose heart.
  • 00:22:00.240 --> 00:22:02.150
  • Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly
  • 00:22:02.160 --> 00:22:05.030
  • we are being renewed day by day.
  • 00:22:05.040 --> 00:22:06.250
  • For our light and momentary troubles are achieving
  • 00:22:06.260 --> 00:22:09.070
  • for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
  • 00:22:09.080 --> 00:22:12.270
  • So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,
  • 00:22:12.280 --> 00:22:16.150
  • since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
  • 00:22:16.160 --> 00:22:20.260
  • 00:22:21.150 --> 00:22:29.090
  • announcer: Here at Kerry Shook Ministries, we know that
