Happy Mother’s Day! All you moms get to church this morning. Let’s worship and give praise to our God for the privilege of being who He made us to be. Count your blessings one by one and name by name. May we give thanks for all God has done.
As Paul Tripp so wisely penned, “Like everything else God calls people to, God doesn’t call people to be parents because they are able…God did not create human beings to be independently able; he designed us to be dependent. It is not a sign of personal weakness or failure of character to feel unable as a parent…Independent ability, like independent righteousness, is a delusion.” May we understand our inability and give credit to our God for any parenting successes. HE is able.
Today we celebrate moms but as a grandmother, I’ve entered the phase of spiritual mothering: women mentoring women. And what a joy it is! I’m sharing with you this morning two great parenting titles and one on mentoring:
Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp
Parenting – 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family by Paul David Tripp
Spiritual Mothering – The Titus 2 Model For Women Mentoring Women by Sunsan Hunt
