Discipleship

a different start to the day…

I started this morning differently… not with a devotional… but with one to whom I’m devoted…

My daughter… already up and about before daylight… stressing a bit about a recent decision… we talked…

A moment of discipling happened… mother to daughter… sister to sister

Looking back… I see a different attitude to take with my adult children in general…

Believing adult children… are not just children… they are disciples in training…

And it makes me wonder about a son… Perhaps he needs more discipling than parenting

Thinking about what that looks like… hoping it may bring us closer… looking for an opportunity to bring up the subject…

“… Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe
all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always,
to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20 ESV
The nations include our children too…
Lord… grateful You are with me always…
Bless me with words… and inspiration… 
to connect with my children… as part of a community disciples… 
and not just my children…
