Max has these oversized, air filled boxing gloves he likes to play with. He really likes for me to put one on and let him hit it and for me to hit his.
That would be really hard to do if I stood while we played. It might also be intimidating for him seeing as I’m 6’2″ and 200 lbs. and he’s only a little over 3′ and maybe 50 lbs..
I typically get down on my knees, at his level, so his punches can connect and so we can have fun together.
Much like what Jesus did for us through his birth, life, death, and resurrection.
“For our high priest is able to understand our weaknesses. He was tempted in every way that we are, but he did not sin. Let us, then, feel very sure that we can come before God’s throne where there is grace. There we can receive mercy and grace to help us when we need it.
Every high priest is chosen from among other people. He is given the work of going before God for them to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. Since he himself is weak, he is able to be gentle with those who do not understand and who are doing wrong.” – Hebrews 4:15-5:2
