God has entrusted (most of us) with a family. Within that family there is liberty to make decisions based on what is best for that family.
As Christians, sometimes we think that giving our opinion on certain topics is okay, even when it isn't asked for.
Let's say for instance topics like:
- working moms vs. stay at home moms
- nursing babies vs. feeding formula
- birth control vs. using no form of protection
- sending kids to school vs. homeschooling
- natural birth vs. med assisted
There is a nice way to go about sharing our viewpoints (because we all have one)... and there is a an UGLY way about it.
The ugly way about it gives no grace, no freedom to trust that God is working within that said family unity, etc.
Your thoughts? Sometimes what we think doesn't really matter. We should just pray that we make the right decisions for our own family and let God work in other people's homes.
As mothers, (especially) I feel we can cut other moms down the most.
Why is that?
What if, instead, we came alongside one another and really spread some encouragement with our words, hearts, and actions?
