The institution of family is a powerful weapon, either way it wields. If it is magnified above God, it does as much harm as if it magnifies the opposition. If it is used correctly, as the basis for all of life's nurturing and learning and worship of God, it can be a powerful tool against the opposition. If we are deceived and believe ourselves incapable as parents, then what? In my own strength I may be incapable of much. (I am.) In my own mindset, I am lacking in so many areas (I am), but I can boast that in my weakness He is glorified.
