Today's Family: Overcoming Temptation

When Nathan was two, I bought him a new pair of scissors. He was so excited to get to cut. What a big boy thing! As I was watching him at a distance…without him aware I was there…I watched him go from cutting paper to slowly raising his scissors to his hair. As I held by breath, I watched him hesitate for just a minute…think things over…and carefully lower the scissors back down to the paper.

What a lesson learned from my two-year-old boy about about making good choices and overcoming temptation!
