How Eternity Shapes our Mundane
This is a great article at DesiringGod.org about not missing the big picture when raising our children:
Two great quotes:
“Second, we forget that our children are more than just potential adults. They are people made in God’s image and they have eternal souls. When the mundane looms larger than eternal life we forget who God is, who we are, and who our children are.”
“By God’s grace I can resist the temptation to treat my children as interruptions to my will for my life. Instead, God enables me to treat them as precious gifts he is using to shape me into his image according to his will for my life.”
Read the whole thing here.
Near the end, the author says, “In light of eternity, I want to seize day-to-day opportunities to lift her sights to admire God and image him.”
Don’t forget about eternity as you shepherd your children in the “mundane” routine of life today!
