Seeking Praise

Posted on: 7-15-112017

My 10 month old grandson has recently started a new ritual. Every time he takes a bite of food, he looks at me with his big, brown eyes, claps his hands, and waits expectantly for me to say, “Good job!” Once I say those words,he bursts into the biggest grin and is then ready for another bite. It just melts my heart because you can just tell by the look on his face that he knows   that “good job” is coming. He likes receiving praise from his Nana and because it thrills him so, I make sure I lavish him with it. Liking to be praised starts young and we never outgrow it. We all like to hear that we are doing a good job. We all like to know that someone is paying attention to us and that we are important to them. And we all have a Father in heaven who loves us even more than I love my sweet boy! Everything we do matters to Him. He is there watching us every step of the way, ready to offer us praise and encouragement along the way.
