This week’s Tuesday Topic comes from Mary who writes,
We are a new foster family. Over the last year our hearts and minds have been challenged by the orphan and God’s love for the oppressed. My husband and I wonder how we missed it for so long! We have been so wrapped up in self and “our family”.
As your family has grown and as you all have been awakened to a world that God loves and asks us to love also, do you have any suggestions on how to balance all of this, especially at Christmas? We all have limited funds, so how do we make spending choices that love and cherish our children, but love and cherish others as well?
This is a great topic as we head into Advent and the Christmas season. How do you find the balance?
I would love to see us get some dialogue going — so bring it on. How do you balance this in your families? As Mary so nicely put it, how do you love and cherish your children while loving and cherishing others?
