To Moms of Preschoolers and Elementary Children –
Busy moms usually receive encouragement the best through the little things. We hope this little note of encouragement will speak to you where you are and let you know we are all still here, rooting for you! Larrissa Owens and Lindsey Crumby have teamed together to provide scripture, visual description and inspiring words – just for you.
“Don’t just pretend to love others, really love them.
Hate what is wrong, hold tightly to what is good.”
The tension of these days feels heavy. Division feels like the norm and isolation is still prevalent. But the Word points to better in the midst of our messy unknown. A way that is full of genuine hearts for our neighbors of every kind. A way that points to Him.
We do not have to live into the lie that we are against our neighbor. That the differences between us, no matter how large and unavoidable, are enough to prevent us from loving and caring for each other in real and lasting ways. God literally gives us that gift day after day. We build walls that cater to our own will and he loves. All in and right in the middle, paying the highest cost to get to us. And he reminds us that we can follow suit in our days. That the true kind of love comes from clinging to Him. He is what’s good. He is the only thing that enables us to love from genuine and true places, no matter the differences.
Father, help us cling to you. You are what is true and good. Teach us to love as You do. The time is now and we are willing.
