Mothering (part 5)
There you have it. Filling our children’s little measure brimful with good wheat.
Steve and I took this to heart. There was no parenting technique that was 100% successful. If the only thing I could do to help my child for life was to fill her little measure brimful with good wheat, well then, that is what I aimed to do.
I realized that I couldn’t necessarily control the results but I certainly could stir in the right ingredients. What ingredients would be considered ‘good wheat’?
“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper [in the thing] for which I sent it.”
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word.”
“But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.”
