Teachable moments are so very precious. They are those moments that you can’t plan, can’t anticipate, they just happen.
I remember recently my son came to me concerned about an online history lesson he had completed. The story was talking about different idols and Gods and since this did not line up with our families faith he had felt uncomfortable.
For a “moment” I felt a little angry that this lesson would teach these things to my child. It had put something in his little brain that I was not ready for him to be exposed to. However, as I stopped and thought it through, I realized that this was an excellent opportunity for me to talk about why our family believes the way it does. It was a teachable moment. Looking back I now see that this turned out to be a HUGE moment in this child’s life.
