She Was Just Like Her Children

loving God, being grateful, compared to parents of adult children
Many a mom has made significant sacrifices to raise her children only to have her children forget about her when they leave home.

We can understand that human situation, but we often forget about our attitude as God's children.

Our Heavenly Father made the greatest of all sacrifices for us.

I can never repay Him, but I can show my appreciation in significant ways.

So why am I sometimes stingy with my prayers, praise and time in God's Word? Why do I sometimes take Him for granted when He loves me more than any mother could love her children.

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” [says the Lord]
Isaiah 49:15 (NIV)

Today let's ask God to help us become grateful children who daily show Him how much He means to us.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful and encouraging blog - combined with things of everyday life. I first read the other (Hungarian?) But I saw that it could not react. So I came here.

  2. This is very touching! It put things in a whole new perspective. Wow. I was reminded that I am not the perfect child either...but how I long to be. :)
