What do you have to do today? How long is the list? Sports? Co-op? Dance class? Volunteer work? Doctor’s appointments? Oh and cook and clean and run a home? A mom’s day is CRAMMED! The demands oh mother’s, especially homeschooling stay at home moms who run a business on the side, like me… are never-ending.
Do you know what is so easy to let slide? My time with God. 5 more minutes on the snooze button sound blissful when I didn’t fall into bed until WAY too late. It is so easy to stop growing spiritually and let everyday activities crowd out time for God!
But you know what? The greatest gift we can possibly give our husbands, our children, and yes… ourselves is an example of what a true and deep relationship with God really looks like. To display a desire to know His word and His truth. They say actions speak louder than words. We can preach all we want about a walk with God. But are we living it?
Hebrews 5:12-14 says:
12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
