Fact from Fiction
Charles Dickens is my wife’s favorite nineteenth century author. In fact, we named our third child Nicholas after the delightful character of Nicholas Nickleby, who has to be the most selfless and generous son and brother in all of literature. Our Nick is eighteen now and, I’m glad to say, embodies many of the characters traits of his namesake. “The father of a righteous person will rejoice greatly; whoever fathers a wise child will have joy in him.” (Prov. 23:24) Pray for your kids today that the Lord will turn the fiction of your hopes into the reality of His character.
