Today's Christianity.com Encouragement for Today was perfect timing for me. I will explain why after sharing some of the message. Here it is:
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
"I can't!" My four-year-old shouted as tears streamed down his cheeks. Joshua,
his older brother, was trying to teach him how to use the Etch A Sketch,® but
Andrew gave up before he even touched the little white knobs."
Have you ever heard that one before. Well, I too hear it a lot from my grand kids. Way more than I should hear. The message goes on to explain how a mother came to grips with the problem. It is an excellant message, one I plan to incorprate with the grand kids. I know we are to be builders in Christ, this consists of a Can Do attitude and encouragement. But this really puts it all into better perspective.
