DADs 1:12 – Disabled Children & Biblical Doctrine

As the father of four hearing-impaired children, one of whom has other yet-unidentifiable genetic issues going on, I really appreciated this post from Justin Taylor. Been there. Done that. Oh, yeah…still doing that.

Fellow dad, do you fully embrace the sovereignty and wisdom of God in perfectly knitting (according to His definition) disabled children in His art studio—the womb?

Ponder Exodus 4:11 and give all praise to God who makes no mistakes! Remember the power of God is made more visible in weakness (2 Cor 12:9).

Also, if you’ve not read Greg Lucas’s little, fast-reading book, Wrestling with an Angel, you really should.

  1. Hello brother Paul!

    Glad you are a good father to your Deaf children! Not many parents like you and my parents because they felt that they are sinning against God when they have a Deaf child. Many parents do not understand why they have a Deaf child(ren). Jesus clearly said it is NOT sinning against God when you have Deaf children (John 9:1-3). Most important is to love Deaf children, learn to communicate with them through sign language and embrace them no matter what.

    Soli Deo Gloria!
    Rev. Toby
