Wall Art: The Silent Influencer

As I prepare to hang pictures in my "new to me home office", I want to share this story with you.

I once read a story about a young man who became a surfer.  And sadly his choice of a
profession was to the dismay of his parents.

You see his mom and dad wanted their son to become a medical doctor or an attorney. Yes, they wanted him to become some type of professional of their own choosing.

As the story continued,  it was discovered that the son and his family had eaten breakfast and dinner together at the same table for many many years. 

They had taken the time to eat together. 

Well, that's special.

But this is what the real blow you away discovery was...There above the table hung a picture on the wall.

The mom had hung a picture of a beautiful ocean with big waves and a pretty blue sky. 
And right there riding the wave was a surfer.

For many many years at that table no one ever mentioned the art on the wall but it silently influenced the son in his life profession.

What's on your walls?

...by beholding you become changed and so do our children . 

And thou shalt write them upon the posts of your house,  and on your gates.
-Deuteronomy 6:9
