The mommy battles rage and this week another started.
It’s not okay to be on your iPhone while your kids play at the park or it is.
Honestly, everyone has their opinion, but do we really need to share it? To all these issues there is no one right answer. These are not black and white issues so why do so many women treat them as if they are?
Women, Moms, your standard does not stand on the latest blog post or current hot parenting book. Your standard, if you are a Christian, should be God’s Word, nothing more.
Are you doing this?
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
(Matthew 22:37-39 ESV)
I know I still need help doing this, but I think once we have this figured out (if ever) we won’t be pointing fingers, we’ll be holding hands, despite our differences. We’ll be praying for that woman before we judge. We’ll be praying for discernment ourselves.
The Bible is what you need to use as your moral compass. The Bible and the Holy Spirit is what you need to tell whether what you’re doing is right or wrong. You will not find a yes or no to whether it’s okay to use your iPhone, but the Spirit of God will guide you. Stop looking to the world for advice, for guidance and find it in Jesus.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
(Romans 12:2 ESV)
So, if you want to feel guilty about something, feel guilty about not obeying God’s Word not man’s.
