Being Sent Day by Day

What does it mean to be sent? For me, being sent as a new mom looks like teaching my daughter about the heart of God. How else will she care and love the people that Jesus loves? This question is a daily reminder, challenge, and encouragement for my own walk with Jesus.

How can I possibly hope to teach her without studying the Bible, seeking wisdom and understanding, being in gospel-friendships, or serving the body of Christ? Being sent for me does not look like going out to many people-it is discipling one person, every day, for at least 18 years.

Only by leaning on the strength, wisdom, patience and love of my Heavenly Father will I be able to do this.
