Parenting quotes

In honor of Father's Day, a couple parenting quotes (for moms and dads) that have challenged and encouraged me this week . . .

"You take care of the possible, and leave the impossible to God."
~Erwin Lutzer, pastor of Moody Memorial Church

- He spoke specifically of single moms, but I think the application can find a broader audience. Too often I try to tackle the impossible, or blame myself when something humanly impossible falls through. I just need to do the possible, and trust God with the rest.

"No one loves any child more than the God who created that child. Yes, you would die for that child, but God already has."
Gary Thomas, Sacred Parenting

- These words challenged me to reevaluate how much I really trust God with my kids. He loves them more than I ever could. That brings great reassurance as I surrender them to God. The maker of the universe, the sovereign God of eternity, loves my kids.
