Day 15--Finger

Daddy's finger to be exact, lending a helping hand, well finger.  Children rely on their father. A Daddy's hand holds great responsibility. It must know when to be gentle and when to be firm. It must know when to be a hand that points with assistance and a hand that points with guidance.

The most beautiful hands ever were those of the Savior who were nailed to a cross. His fingers and hands stretched across the expanse of a Cross for the atonement of our sins.  The finger of God moving across the vast expanse of time and space to erase the penalty of sin, if one chooses to accept the nail scarred hand of the Lord Jesus.

Mike here points the way in a puzzle for Hannah, but the most important way to point the way with our children is to point to the words and read them from the Bible. Let's use our fingers and lives and actions and words and deeds and point the way to the REAL answer. JESUS.
