Proverbs 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
Our family went to watch a baseball game today (not something that is advisable for everyone, because the atmosphere can be offensive, etc...). Nonetheless, we had an interesting and uplifting interaction with a lady.
The woman was sitting directly behind us and after a few innings she asked my wife, "Are they all your children?" She told her that one of the children is our nephew and the woman stated that they are well behaved. Fascinatingly, she then asked are they home-schooled?, of course the answer was yes! Next, she informed us that she is in her first year of home-schooling, although dad is the one doing the schooling.
I wanted to share that according to another we are doing something praiseworthy, however it is not we ourselves, it is HE who teaches us what is right and acceptable to his worthy and just eyes.
May his name be praised!
