Refections of a Parent
10 Apr 2000

  I gave you life, but I cannot live it for you.
  I can teach you things, but I cannot make you learn.
  I can give you directions, but I cannot be there to lead you.
  I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe.
 
  I can teach you right from wrong, but I cannot decide for you.
  I can offer you advice, but I cannot accept it for you.
  I can give you love, by I cannot force it upon you.
  I can teach you to share, but I cannot make you unselfish.
 
  I can teach you to respect, but I cannot force you to show honor.
  I can advise you about friends, but I cannot choose them for you.
  I can tell you the facts of life, but I can't build your reputation.
  I can warn you about drugs, but I can't prevent you from using them.
 
  I can tell you about lofty goals, but I can't achieve them for you.
  I can teach you about kindness, but I can't force you to be gracious.
  I can warn you about your sins, but I cannot make you moral.
  I can pray for you, but I cannot make you walk with God.
 
  I can teach you about Jesus, but I cannot make Jesus your Lord.
  I can tell you how to live, but I cannot give you eternal life.
