Being a Parent to Others

1 Peter 2:2 – as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,

I was recently at a coffee shop and I observed a mother with three young children (from infant to preschool age). While she was mom to all, she interacted with them differently. Obviously, mom spent the most time caring for her infant, a little less time with the two older children. She loves and cares for them all, but how she does it is different.

In today’s Word Peter tells us, “as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,“. This scripture reminded me that although we are to help nurture and grow Christians in their faith, how we do it will be different depending on where they are in their walk. We can be a spiritual parent to many, but how we do it will change. I pray that today you will be a blessing to all believers you encounter today.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
