Each of My Core Values has a subtitle that describes a litmus test by which I can determine success or failure in that area of life. For this one, it is:
Spiritually and Financially.
I think I live in a society that wrongly venerates children. But, I think that society is right to recognize unique the value and significance of children.
Children need leadership (like some adults) and are usually unable to lead themselves (like some adults). Therefore, there is a call from each generation as it comes into the world to be treated with protective care and guided unto right living/thinking. That’s the role I want to fill for people that are younger than me.
The two arenas/capacities in which I especially want to provide this paternal care and guidance to some of the next generation’s people are the spiritual and financial aspects of life because of their significance. In order to achieve this goal, I must be literate in both fields as well as have an understanding of pedagogy as well as true compassion that allow me to father children effectively.
