“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."
Before I had children this verse was no problem for me, easy to do. I could give up anything for Jesus and make Him number one in my life. Even after having children it still was not very hard to do because the kids would just come with me. Then came the day my daughter, at a Heidi Baker conference, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, crawled her way on to the stage and dedicated her life to Jesus in missions over seas.
I lost it.
"No God, no please not that."
Serving our Lord costs us everything we have. I give my all to Him, even my children, if this is His will. I know, if my children do serve God overseas, He will come in and fill me up in ways I cannot imagine. Maybe He will even let me go with them.
Matthew 10:38 NIV
"Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me."
