Nurturing God’s Children
“Mom, which high school do you want me to go to?”
Surprised that my then-10-year-old—who excelled at living in the moment—was thinking multiple years into the future, it took me a minute to orient myself to this conversation. In my silence, he explained that as he and his fifth-grade classmates were discussing where they would attend middle school the following year, a number of his classmates had not just school plans in mind, but career paths. He named professions and educational tracks, enrichment plans and extracurricular activities that his friends learned of through their parents or older siblings.
“I want you to go to the school that feels right to you,” I finally managed to respond. That answer apparently struck him as noncommittal or vague because he said, “But what do you want for me, really?”
Through these pages, consider stories from the Bible that show God caring for and nurturing God’s children—the ultimate parenting and interpersonal relationships book.
