Where is the Hope? For starters we can make a conscious effort to show grace for each other and lift each other up. Our world and most of the people in it are good at finding fault and tearing each other down. As moms and parents we often are quick to judge. That is not our job!
I enjoy listening to pastor James Macdonald, I like the way he gives messages in a down to earth kind of way. I recently watched a short video of his on “Grace,” here is a portion: “…and I reiterate, do NOT make parenting a place of judgment! Give each other grace, tolerance and kindness when it comes to raising our babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, school age, teenagers and adult children! There is nothing you can do to guarantee your kids will follow the Lord, but there are the some things you can do to guarantee that they won’t.”
Be quick to give Grace.
