Why I'm Not the #1 Dad

This post is shorter than most on The Daily Saint but brevity can often be the best teacher.  Before a recent trip I took with my kids around town, we packed some sandwiches and labeled them with a Sharpie.  As I handed out everyone's lunch, my seven year old saw my sandwich and laughed.

My lunch, self labeled I admit, said, "#1 Dad".

After I admitted to being the man behind the label, my son questioned me and said the following, "Dad, come on!  You should know better than this.  You're not the #1 Dad- God is."  We then had a great talk about God's role in our daily lives.  Simple as that.

Sometimes it takes a child to show you a life lesson.
