“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6, NIV)
As families start preparing for the new school year, including my own, I am reminded of this important verse in Proverbs. Not only does this verse remind me as a mom that God has given me the important responsibility of raising my kids on His name to know Him full well, but it also continues to challenge me in regards to Elevate and our ministry to work with those that do not know Him, or long to know Him more. Meg Bucher once wrote as a prayer for mothers, “We praise You for blessing us with motherhood, and the intentional way it matures our faith in You… There is no love that is an accident or outside Your will, because You are love. Each child, each person was created on purpose with purpose. Praise You that we get to take part in the greatest love story of all time.” What a great reminder – He is love. As our kids get ready for school, let us bless them with His love. As we work to open Elevate in October, let’s continue to do with His love in our hearts knowing full well this is His calling for our team and those that believe in it. Let us prepare our hearts to share with each mom and family we work with that “each child was created on purpose WITH PURPOSE… to mature our faith in Him.”
