A baby is a good mimicker
A baby is a mirror reflection
Of what the parents portray
Of what actions are observed
A baby is dependent
A baby is trusting
On those who take care
On those who nurture
How much more the nurturer needs Jesus Christ
How much more the nurturer needs to depend in Christ
How much more the nurturer needs God’s strength
How much more the nurturer needs God’s wisdom
How much more the nurturer needs to give good examples
How much more the nurturer needs to walk the talk
How much more the nurturer needs to lead properly
Above all, the nurturer needs God’s nurture
Nurture to fear and revere God
Nurture to listen and obey God with their daily lives
A daily life as a daily sacrifice to God.

The actions of my cute toddler suddenly came upon me as I was dozing off. When he took my lip balm and swiftly apply it onto his lips due my niece apply my mother’s lip moisturiser onto his. Then another occasion of taking out the weighing machine under my parents’ bed to weigh himself due to whenever my brother enters the room often takes it out and weigh himself. The third occasion was observing my parents to wipe legs with the blue cloth on the floor. Upon hearing the words to wipe his legs, he runs into my parents’ room and immediately stomps onto that cloth. But the helper intends to wipe his legs with another cloth. Fourth occasion is to spray perfume onto his armpits knowing it smelly due to perspiration whenever he got a hold of my mum’s perfume.
Those actions amuse me and make me laugh whenever my family talk about it or suddenly playing visually in mind.
These reminded me of Deuteronomy 6:5-7 (NASB), “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”
