A Higher Goal
Sometimes as parents we feel that we need an extra shot of endurance just to make it through the day. The end, the goal, becomes “making it though the day.” That’s understandable. But there’s a higher objective. “Now may the God of endurance and comfort give you unity with one another in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Rom. 15:5, 6) The next time you need endurance, remember: Our goal should never stop at our own comfort, but always seek the glory of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
