I posted this on our church blog, but thought it was worth sharing. It is both rebuking & encouraging to me!
How can eternity influence a mother’s daily tasks?
[Excerpt from a sermon by John Piper.]
I believe it is a very high calling to be a mom charged with teaching everything she possibly can to one, two, or eight kids.
A mother will delight most in the little baby in front of her when she has a vision of God and a vision of the world that’s big enough to admit that this little child has a destiny in front of him or her and might become this or that.
Ralph Winter used to say that nothing has an impact on kids except what they do daily. So we did prayer & devotions daily.
I hope you all have a very blessed Mother's day weekend [I know I will because of this sweet little bundle AND a special daddy]!
