One day Jesus was talking to his disciples and he asked Simon Peter if he loved Jesus more than the others and Simon Peter said, “Yes, of course I do.” Jesus then instructed Simon Peter to “feed my lambs.” Jesus repeated it two more times and Simon Peter said, “Yes, you know that I love you.” The last time Jesus asked Simon Peter he said, “Take care of my sheep.” (John 21:15-17).
This got me to thinking, I’m not Simon Peter. I’m not a minister. I’m a mom who homeschooled my children, how does that relate to me? Well, my children are kind of like my flock of sheep. When they were growing up, I led them, took care of them, taught them, shared God with them, and helped them find their way. I was their shepherd and you are the shepherd of your children.
For the next few months, I plan to blog about how moms are shepherds to their children; how we take care of them intellectually, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Look for my blog posts on Mondays and Thursdays and let me know what you think.
