Having acknowledged that I am not a mind reader, I also understand that I do not know all that goes on in the heart of my children.
As their mother, I can feed them healthy foods, take them to the doctor for checkups, provide them with a loving home environment and supply them with a good education.
I cannot, however, make them grow spiritually. Only God can work in the heart of my children – but, as I am willing and surrendered, He can use me in the process.
