Some cannot please their parents no matter how hard they try. An A should be an A plus. The home-run received applause, but two would have won the game. The Student Counsel debate went well, but lacked assertiveness.
It seems that more is always expected. Are the parents cruel or merely seeking to motivate their children to reach for excellence? Do they see more potential than their less confident boys and girls?
The words of the Apostle Paul both convict and challenge us. "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God (Philippians 1:9-11 NKJ)." The demand for more pushes me from my comfort zone to share a legacy of love.
