Let’s begin week 5 in our Ministry of Motherhood book club with Sally Clarkson! This week we will begin reading about the Gift of Inspiration.
The Gift of Inspiration is personally one of my favorite gifts Sally discusses in this book. I love how Sally continually reminds her children they were created for a purpose. It’s so important for our children to realize they are here on this earth to do something very special for our Lord. Teaching them they each have a “part” to play in God’s epic story not only gives them a purpose for their lives but also a sense of responsibility to make sure they make wise decisions and obey the Lord so that they fulfill their part in God’s story. Teaching our children that God created them with a certain personality, skills and talents to play the role He designed just for them. As Christians, we all have a part to play in this beautiful story that God is writing through the lives of His children. We are each called to different roles, but put together our lives tell a story unlike one we can ever imagine.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from today’s video:
“We are created by God for a purpose that is bigger than ourselves. We are not the center of the universe. We are here to usher in God’s Kingdom.”- Sally Clarkson
“Someday you will meet Jesus face to face and have to give an account of your life. How were you a steward of the gospel?”- Sally Clarkson
