Nowadays, preachers keep emphasizing the need to ‘love our neighbors in order to be good Christians’, but that is not where God tells us to start our sanctification journey. When speaking to self-proclaimed “experts” on God’s law, Jesus addressed the debate head on:
We don’t have a lot of clutter in our house. Why? We don’t have it because we don’t purchase it in the first place.
We were made to work and be the undershepherds of creation (Gen. 2). Unfortunately, after the Fall, work got a lot harder and became far less enjoyable.
It is so much easier to walk with God when we appear to be “walking on water”. You know the feeling–you are winning at almost everything you try, your kiddos are behaving, and your cooking is tasting amazing.
Just Saturday, the weather was near 80 Fahrenheit and my family was wearing summer clothing. However, Monday morning, Autumn arrived. Windy, rainy, and 40-ish degrees in South Texas–what a shocker! Long sleeve, long leg clothes and stroller blankets for my kiddos, check. Fresh office wear for my husband, check. North Face coats all around, check. Winter nursing clothes in my current size, #MamaFail!
A Proverbs 31 woman is supposed to be prepared for the season’s change, but this time, I dropped the ball–on me.
Text: Matthew 5:27-30
Lately, society has indicted men for lust and sexual misconduct. However, we as Christian women also need to take inventory of our own lives and root out our own sexual misconduct. It is not good enough to remember to sleep in our own beds with our own husbands every night.
Just like many other mamas who make career sacrifices in order to be more hands on with their kiddos, I too occassionally feel the urge to to go back to my previous profession.
