Yesterday, after church, my son Cody walked up to me and said, "You are really good at what you do."
I have received compliments like this over the years from people as they were walking out the door and shaking my hand.
"Good message today, Preacher!"
"You stepped all over my toes today!"
"You're going to be the next Charles Stanley (someone actually said that to me once---at least they didn't say Robert Tilton)!"
This time, however, was different. It was very moving to get such a nod from Cody. He does not hand them out freely, and he is a very intelligent, godly young lad in his own right. It was one of those special father-son moments that I will never forget.
