as i write a lesson about the greatest commandment, love… and consider this verse “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” Matthew 22:37-38, i’m thinking that loving your family is the place to start putting this into action. showing it and sharing it are crucial to obedience and make life so much better.
i often tell my kids, love one another (many times, admittedly, its when they aren’t actively displaying their love for each other)… but i read something else today that was really convicting.
love your kids the most when they deserve it the least.
what better way to show them what God’s love looks like! We can’t begin to touch the love he shows us… but parent love is the closest thing we have on earth to show it to them.
