This reminder hangs on our dining room wall…Three simple truths deeply rooted in scripture and profoundly impacting how we treat others and ourselves. I pray this every night for my kids. I know things may not be going your way and you may even feel the stress this weekend of parenting. Take a positive approach to honoring mom and remember these 3 things.
Three Things Mom Wants For You –
- Safety – Sure, a diligent mom is going to do everything in her power to keep her children safe. Physical safety is never guaranteed, however your eternal security is pretty much a done deal. Placing your trust in Jesus helps you to remember this. My children need the reminder of safety every day. “Never will I leave you, Never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
- Love – All children have to deal with fear at some point in their lives. As a matter of fact, if a child does not receive adequate love and affection as a young child it has the effect of permanent scarring of the brain. But there is a restorer – “Perfect love drives out fear” 1 John 4:18
- Doing The Right Thing – Yes there are cameras in my house. Why? Not necessarily because I don’t trust my children (Well, sometimes) But more so they feel safe. I want them to remember God always sees them and is with them. They have a the ability and responsibility to do the right thing. God sees EVERYTHING “I will show you my faith by my deeds.” James 2:18
