Evangelizing

 Caleb and I were reading one of our favorite devotionals, Morning and Evening and that particular night was about not wasting opportunities in your day to point others to Christ. I told him that sometimes I'm a little jealous of the interactions he has in the outside world. I spend my days with little ones that barely understand how to talk. 


Caleb on the other hand spends his days in a lot of adult conversation and many opportunities to share Christ. I love that for him and pray he doesn't waste it. 


But he reminded me of something. I spend my day with two little ones in desperate need of a Savior. I have all day long to point the souls I care about most to Jesus. What could be a better use of my time? It's easy to loose perspective, but I'm so thankful for a husband that points me back to truth. 


I want to be like Susanna Wesley who was willing to, "entirely devote twenty years of the prime of life in hopes to save the souls of my children." 
I see my purpose when I look at my babies.

Very true and a good reminder! I was just thinking about this as I see more and more of Finn's sin nature coming out. We have a big and wonderful responsibility. :-)

ok... number one, that quote just pummled my heart. I want to be like that. I love the idea of our missions work being toward our children. and number two, although you don't "know" people reading your blog.. it is an opportunity to speak truth into other's lives, too.
