Of Utmost Concern...

"What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?  In addition, what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses the soul of his children?

The success of a tree or a man is measured by the fruit that is borne.  The fruit of a man or woman is their children; everything else is falling leaves.

May they graduate from my tutorship to become disciples of the Man from Nazareth. May they know good and evil from the pinnacle of obedience rather than from the pit of despair.  May they have the wisdom to choose the precious and the courage to reject the trite and the vain.  May they always labor for the meat that endures.  May they be lovers of God, coworkers with the Holy Spirit, and a friend to the Lord Jesus.  And when their trail ends, may it end at the throne of God laying crowns at the Savior's feet."

excerpt from No Greater Joy Volume 1

...encouragement to keep on, keepin' on.  We are doing Kingdom work, as we train, teach, and nurture our children, day in day out!  Have a wonderful week everyone!
