Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
(Galatians 6:2, NIV)
As our children grow and leave home, we have less and less daily influence on them. They develop their own routines, relationships, and obligations. They face their own problems and temptations.
They will need positive influences in their lives. And for the most part, those influences will no longer be us.
As we face that emotionally, we pray that someone out there will befriend our children – someone who will care about them and be that influence that they’ll need and that we can’t be.
All around you every day are other people’s children. Somewhere, someone cares. Someone is probably praying. Will you be that friend they’re praying for?
