Ever get discouraged in your mothering? In your attempts to disciple a new believer? In your efforts at evangelism? By your own lack of spiritual growth?
At the recent NEXT conference, Kevin DeYoung described it like this:
“When we are dealing with the Word—whether its with our kids, our roommates, our congregation—we feel like they are behind a six-foot deep cement bunker and we have spit wads and it is just little spit wads against this six-foot concrete bunker. And you think, “that’s never going to happen; this is a complete waste; that person will never grow, never come to the Lord.”
What can penetrate the six-foot concrete bunker that is the heart of a foot-stomping toddler or God-cursing neighbor?
In this mini-sermon within a sermon (which includes him singing a song from Finding Nemo!), Mr. DeYoung shows us the answer in Mark chapter four.
Take ten minutes to listen today and be freshly filled with hope for mothering and ministry.
