Day 9 of the “Wild Kids, Wild God – 31 Days looking at God’s Heart” Series.
I read once that children are “books for us to read, not to write” (as parents). This really affected me. Am I too busy instilling my own stuff and not leaving room for my kids themselves? Since then I’ve tried to focus on having my kids grow in love for others and standing up for people. Beyond that, the floor is theirs. Rock out. I won’t tell a flower bud what color to bloom.

You may think you don’t need to love them–they’re not family (though even sometimes we can have terrible family spats…). But if you only love those who love you back, what more do you do than anyone else?
