Nancy Abell admits her maternal instinct may be a little overactive. But when a young woman she met from Germany, Katharina Groene, told her she was hiking alone along the Pacific Crest Trail in Washington State, she had a hunch that Groene would need help, and called 911. And her hunch proved right. Steve Hartman reports. https://cbsn.ws/2Rt2rif ... See more
Jairus heard two voices and had to choose which one to heed. The first from the servants in Luke 8:49, “Your daughter is dead.” The second from Jesus in verse 50, “Don’t be afraid.”
We need to know what Jesus will do when we entrust our kids to him. In the story of Jairus, Jesus united the household. In verse 51 “he let only Peter, John, James, and the girl’s father and mother go inside with him.” Next, he banished unbelief…the scoffers. “He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, ‘Little girl, arise.’”
God has a heart for hurting parents. After all, God himself is a father. Keep giving your child to God, and in the right time and the right way, God will give your child back to you - Max Lucado ... See more
Fear turns some parents into paranoid prison guards who monitor every minute, check the background of every friend. A family with no breathing room suffocates a child. On the other hand, fear can also create permissive parents. Fearing that their child will feel too confined or fenced in, they are high on hugs and low on discipline. They don’t realize that appropriate discipline is an expression of love.
Permissive parents. Paranoid parents. How can we avoid the extremes? We pray. Jesus’ big message to moms and dads? Bring your children to me. Pray that your children have a profound sense of place in this world and a heavenly place in the next. Parents, we can entrust our kids to Christ - Max Lucado ... See more
Parenting comes loaded with fears. Dangers buzz in the background. No parent can sit still while his or her child suffers. Luke Chapter 8 tells us that Jairus couldn’t. “Then a man named Jairus, a leader of the local synagogue, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come home with him. His only daughter, who was about twelve years old, was dying” (vs. 40-42).
Jesus heeded his fears…he still does. Jesus heeds the concerns in the parent’s heart. After all, our kids were his kids first. Even as they are ours, they are still his. We forget that fact. Wise are the parents who regularly give their children back to God.
Parents, we can be loyal advocates, stubborn intercessors; and we can take our parenting fears to Christ - Max Lucado ... See more
