Why I'm Not Teaching My Children To Follow Their Dreams.
[I'm just going to post choice bits, because you really don't need more misery in your life.]
"I can not find anything in Scripture that encourages us to “follow our dreams”. In fact, quite the contrary. My Bible says to “deny yourself and follow Me”.
"Am I teaching my children to follow their dreams? No; I’m teaching them to follow Christ, in whom all their dreams will be fulfilled."
"you obey Scripture and follow God by following your husband. You may pray that God would change the heart of your husband, but I don’t recommend it unless you have spent lots of time asking God to change YOUR heart to the point that you are willing to deny your wants, needs, desires…everything…to follow…God and your husband. That is the heart of being a Christian wife and mother. "
And on and on it goes, for hundreds of comments. Endless women so ready and willing to give up everything for sky daddy.
Gak. That makes me feel...like this:
Wednesday is looking pretty good weather-wise. Might be a good day to lose a toe to the mower. How about you? Any plans? Well, off to cheer up with Dark Souls.
