Motivate Me Monday- He Takes Care of It.

Fifth Street Palace
"I'll do the judging," says God. "I'll take care of it." Romans 12:19 (Message)

My oldest child often forgets that he is a child in our family and not a third parent.  He is often after his sister for some crime committed whether it is truly against the law or not.

A common question at my house is "Hudson who is the Mommy?"

My son does not need to take on the burden of parenting his sister.  I am there.  I will take care of it.

In the above scripture this is what God is telling us.  You don't need to have the burden of judging others.  I am here.  I will take care of it.

So today I am inspired to take up the call to love one another.  Yes we should live with discernment and yes we should have wisdom as our guide, but we do not need to be weighed down with others decisions.  Love.

Beautiful thought today, sister. The Lord led me also to similar thoughts, but different verses. I loved your perspective! Thanks for hosting.

That's a great way to look at it...I have a third-parent-wanna-be in my house too!

I like how the Message translation puts the verse in such a simple light! So true. I needed the reminder :)

In our house we've been know to ask our eldest child, "Whose in charge?"
