A Mother’s Role

Wild Flowers

It is a blessing to participate in the Five Minute Friday writing community. We write on the prompt that Kate Motaung gives. Visit the site to meet other writers and to read their posts. Today’s prompt is: JUST

The dictionary offers these definitions for just: conforming to a standard of correctness, morally upright or good.

When I read the news about things taking place in our country or around the world I can be overwhelmed. What is my role?

As a mother and grandmother my first responsibility is to my family and church. As I spend time in prayer, I need to be sensitive to God’s guidance in interactions with the wider community. When we have a willingness to serve, God works through us to accomplish his purpose.

Micah 6:8

  1. Sorry Carol, I don’t really believe in God. But a higher entity. I would call it nature or the cosmos. A miracle that just happened ! Without any intervention by a being of flesh and blood.
    I agree we all have a responsibility to act and speak just. If enough people believe in a society’s justice, we can change the world for the better. Many steps have already been made even though there is still a lot of intolerable injustice in many countries and a few still in all countries.
    Sometimes, we even have the impression that we are moving backwards, but history has taught us that progress is made in leaps, even if that entails stepping back a few steps.
    Have an enjoyable weekend full of hope and love.

  2. I often get overwhelmed too with all the needs out there. But yes, this: “When we have a willingness to serve, God works through us to accomplish his purpose.” Thanks, Carol.
