Stamped on Every Child's Heart- Impulsive Behavior
Do you know an impulsive child? One who is full of exaggerations, quick to respond, careless with words, and who acts without thinking? Do you have a child who gets out of his seat regularly when he’s not suppose to, interrupts conversations, or jumps to the front of the line uninvited? Impulsiveness is a quick, natural response for these kids. They might do all these things and more (and they generally do them rapidly). Nevertheless in the very same breath, impulsive kids can be quick to defend, remorseful for poor decisions, and able to leap over obstacles in a single bound. Somewhere between frustration and loyalty exists a gift for us to discover in impulsiveness.
The disciple Peter exhibits both the strengths and weaknesses of impulsive behavior. Impulsive Peter rushes into the water to meet Jesus, but he’s also quick to cut off a soldier’s ear. He was quick to defend, he responded without thinking, and he was passionate beyond words. His impulsiveness allowed him to experience the miracle of walking on water, while everyone else watched from inside the boat. The beauty of Peter’s impulsiveness is displayed in his life. Peter’s impulsiveness let him experience close encounters with God. He was authentic and real. He was maturing and challenging. But in the end, he was solid, and the guy others wanted to follow. Discovering the gift of impulsiveness begins in the life of Peter. Written by Rebecca Dawson, M.A.
