In the last post, I shared with you the sermon I gave this past Sunday for Mother’s day.  It was a moving message, the first time that I felt emotional while giving one, because I thought about how much our mothers give and think they are giving their children, but also how they often think they are doing well and find that they missed what was truly important.

I have seen far to many families have their children grow up in church and in a Christian school only to find that later on in life the children decide that their parent’s faith will not be their own.

A Woman’s Greatest Calling

The old saying goes that a woman’s work is never done. In our culture today, she is expected to take care of the home, raise a family and make money. She is supposed to have the finest things money can buy, be connected at the appropriate social outings and serve as a chauffeur to any sporting event that a child wants to attend.

She is expected to be many things, but like Martha of old who was told that Mary chose the best thing, a woman’s greatest calling is often overlooked—the place that she can make the biggest impact in the world is right in her very own home.
