I was blessed with really great parents and I hope you were too. I thought this Grace Moment from Time of Grace (www.timeofgrace.org) really hit the mark. I hope you are enjoying these daily words of encouragement from Pastor Mark Jeske as much as I am—
I know. Not everybody has great parents. Some people don’t have any
parents at all. As with God’s distribution of other gifts, not everybody
gets every gift. But there are plenty of good to great parents who get
taken for granted, as though they were pieces of furniture or machines.
your parents OK? Good? Great? They are precious gifts of God to you,
blessings to make your life better. Parents are God’s stand-ins,
providing security, food, guidance, and discipline. Parents help us
fathom and navigate the complex ways of modern society. Proverbs 23:22
says, Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your
mother when she is old.
The greatest parents are those who share
their faith in Christ with their children. Did you learn about your
Savior from a parent? You are blessed indeed. Are they still living?
Perhaps you could call and thank them. God is good. Parents are good.”
