Lead Them to the Cross

"The gospel seems irrelevant to the smug child who isn't required to do anything he does not want to do. It seems irrelevant to the arrogant child who has been told all his life how wonderful he is.

But the gospel has great relevance for the child who is persuaded that God calls him to do something that is not native to his sinful heart ~ to joyfully and willingly submit to the authority  of someone else! Only the power of the gospel can give a willing heart and the strength to obey."

Love ~ A Poem for Mothers

If I live in a house of spotless beauty with everything in its place, but have not love ~ I am a housekeeper, not a homemaker.
If I have time for waxing, polishing, and decorative achievements, but have not love ~ my children learn of cleanliness, not godliness.
Love leaves the dust in search of a child's laugh.
Love smiles at the tiny fingerprints on a newly cleaned window.
Love wipes away the tears before it wipes up the spilled milk.
Love picks up the child before it picks up the toys.
Love is present through trials.
Love reprimands, reproves, and is responsive. 
As a mother there is much I must teach my child, but the greatest of all is ... LOVE.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

~Isaiah 26:3
