I just read the comment about yesterday’s blog. For anyone not sure about what their “shepherd’s staff” might be, I’d say, “Ask the Lord to show you.” He wants your active participation in building His kingdom, so He would be delighted to show you how to partner with Him.
For mothers of little ones, their staff might be a child’s toy. Their ministry is to their children, to pray for them and raise them as best they can to follow Jesus. Spending time with them, developing relationships with them…that’s the task at hand.
For mothers with teenagers, the staff might be a steering wheel. Moms spend a lot of time driving their kids to and from extracurriculars, and some of the best conversations take place in the car. Again, building relationships with the kids is the most important task at hand during that season of life.
This is a great talking point. Send more comments and let’s see where it goes!
