I clipped the following from Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Connection where he challenges dad's to take on the task of pointing our kids to God.
What is God really like?
• God is caring.
• God is close and aware of the details.
• God is consistent.
• God is competent.
Some of us may be naturally better at a few of these, but none of us does them all as a part of our nature. They are things that have to be put into practice over and over and then we'll do them as second nature. We can't psyche ourselves up and work them like a fad diet or trendy workout. We have to adopt them and be them.
