As the father of a boy, I appreciate the old joke about a father, who was trying to motivate his young son to be more studious. One day, he told his boy, “Son, did you know when Lincoln was your age, he would study books by firelight?”
“That’s great, dad,” the boy replied as he pondered that image. “Dad?”
“When he was your age, wasn’t he president?”
While we should hold high standards, let us maintain a spirit of humility.
