In honour of mother’s day, we’re hearing from four different mothers in our church as they share what they’ve learned about God and following Jesus through their experience as a mother.
We all desire wisdom to make the right decision in all situations. This week we take a look at the beginning of King Solomon’s reign, a man known for his great wisdom, who shows us what is possible as we seek God for his wisdom in our own lives.
All of us have appetites — a natural desire to satisfy a physical or emotional need. But if we don’t rule our appetites, they will rule us and cause us to miss God’s plans for our lives.
We’ve all experienced how frustrating it can be to relate to someone who is self-centred. But at some level we’re all self-centred, and that’s compounded by the self-serving, self-gratifying, self-promoting culture we’re living in. As a result, the journey to maturity as a Christian is a journey from selfishness to selflessness, and the path we take on that journey is serving others.
Our thought lives are not something we’re very intentional about, thoughts just seem drift in and out at random. But the quality of our lives are determined by the quality of our thoughts, which is why the main area we experience God’s transformation is in our thought life.
