Q. I really want to serve Jesus, but I don't know how I can. I'm a single mother with three children, and I just don't have any extra time. Does God understand why I can't serve him?
Did it ever occur to you that you're already serving God by being a good mother to your children? Few tasks are harder than raising a family (especially for single parents) – but few are more important.
Remember: God gave your children to you – and he gave you to them. You may have a “congregation'' of only three – but take your responsibilities just as seriously as if you were pastor of a church or a missionary in a foreign land.
He gave them to you to take care of their physical and emotional needs. Will they be prepared for adulthood? Will they know how to take care of finances and make wise decisions?
But God also gave them to you so you could help them build a strong moral and spiritual foundation. Make sure of your own commitment to Christ – and then ask him to help you point your children to Jesus.
