show me how


"Pray that God will show you how to teach your children 
that life is meant to be lived for God."

Just that one sentence from my reading this morning has set afire my thought life today. God dreamed us up, gave us life, gave us Christ, and gave us gifts. Our life is through Him, to Him, for Him, and with Him. Asking that the Father helps us to lead them beyond the selfish, grandiose (and honestly, weak and watered-down), "you can be anything that you want to be," to the simple beauty and power and promise of becoming what He created us to be (and that is, like Christ) - what a gift and what a challenge.

"You are not the owner of your own body.
You have been bought, and at what a price!
Therefore bring glory to God in your body."

Quite a lesson for this day ♥

"Pray" quote from EE
Scripture from 1 Corinthians 6:20
