Warrior Shooting Principle Learned

“Never point your gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.”

My three and a half year old son, Caleb, can now recite this important lesson in firearms training. In the last few days, Caleb is showing a huge interest in target practice with his single shot Nerf UMP-style gun. His laser focus is like a sniper. I also taught him the difference between target shooting and point shooting. As he loads one round at a time with such intense focus and determination to be on point, he makes me a proud daddy.

Caleb’s target is a laid over table with a sticky note on it for target acquisition. The sticky note has a small circle filled in to focus on.

Did I say Caleb is three and a half?

Oh, and my one and a half year old, Justice, is following suit to his brother. He was even asking Caleb to help him load and cock the Nerf gun. Of course, he hasn’t grasped the principle and sometimes you have to duck at his rounds.

Proud Warrior daddy of my warrior sons,

Family strong.

What are you doing today to cultivate your family relationships? We often divert to watch a show or movie (not to say there aren’t times when that is a positive experience), but when it’s the norm how does that really contribute to relationship? So many distractions exist to keep you away from your relationships. Technology has given you access to so much more ___________ (fill in the blank). But, it has also robbed you of human interaction. When is the last time you played catch, chase or just conversed.

When is the last time you had a technologically distraction free meal with your loved ones? God said it is not good for man to be alone, and has given you great blessing in relationship. Satan seeks to separate you from relationship. Your battle will always have distraction to keep you from spending time with your family.

“Family involvement is a valuable thing and playing together actively can be the ’90s version of it. Instead of just watching, you can do it together… something we don’t spend enough time on. We can motivate and excite each other about fitness.”- Alan Thicke

Be Warrior Strong and Family Strong.

Daddy, will you tickle my back?

Just about every night, Caleb asks the same question: “Daddy, will you tickle my back?” It’s a definite nightly ritual. Tonight, Caleb asked for worship music as he was getting into bed. “Daddy, will you play worship ‘muskic’?” We were praying the Our Father, and I found this song (link below). He said, “Daddy, I like that ‘muskic’.” Son, I pray you always keep a heart sensitive to God and prayer and desire to worship. That is the heart of a true warrior for YHVH.
