Once again, our mother-daughter team will take a look at some of the key issues working their way through our judicial system. From parents’ rights to so-called “abortion rights”, judges and legislatures are tackling key issues dealing with transcendent questions like, “What does it mean to be human”? We will explain why knowing these issues is important as you look well to the ways of your household.
Life and relationships can be complicated and frustrating. But when we see ourselves, others, and the world through the eyes of Jesus, everything changes. Instead of pain we can see purpose. Instead of opposition, opportunity. Instead of fear, freedom. Thankfully, Spirit-filled sight isn't reserved for the spiritually elite. It's available to all of us through a simple, intimate prayer: "Jesus, how do you see this?" When you see as Jesus sees, you'll be empowered to:
· discover the wonder and beauty you've been missing
· clear away needless frustrations and misunderstandings
· take the limits off your life
· see others with genuine compassion and faith
· have hope again for the world through Christ's victory over sin and death
