In the book Do Yourself a Favor: Love Your Wife, there is a story about a certain little boy who was asked what his father did. The boy said, "He watches."

"You mean that he is a night watchman?"

"Oh, no," the little boy exclaimed, "He just watches."

"Well, what does he watch?"

"I don't know if I can tell you everything," the boy continued, "but I can name a few things."

"Well, tell me," the now curious man replied.

"He watches TV, he watches Mom do the housework, he watches for the paper boy, he watches the weather, and I think he watches girls, too," he said with an impish grin on his face. "He watches the stock market, football games, all the sports, he watches Mother spank us, and he watches us do our homework. He watches us leave to go to church and PTA and shopping. He watches Mom write letters and me play with my dog. He watches Mom pay the bills. But mainly, he said with a touch of sadness, he just watches."

God wants us to be much more than a watcher. Our call is to share and give God’s love.
