Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22: 36-40
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee? but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27
My friend Bambi (In the Nursery of the Nation) wrote a great post last year after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage at Revive Our Hearts. It’s what first encouraged me that our children were born for this time. I think you’ll find it very encouraging.
Stay strong, parents. You may be raising a Daniel!
