The things you long for your kids to be. Be that. That’s what Jesus told Shawna as she held her beautiful firstborn daughter Brynn. It’s a conversation about loving our kids better by modeling for them what we long for them to be. Then, Zaira, a Muslim in the Middle East met Jesus in a dream, and she started following him. She faced persecution in her Muslim village, but the worst from her husband Tarif. He would pull her across the floor by her hair, cursing her. And yet Zaira didn’t respond with hatred. It’s a conversation about loving our enemies and how the gospel empowers us to do it.
Next, we have some fun with this: Something we love so much that we can talk for thirty minutes without any prep work.

Mark Jobe is the President of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and bible teacher on Bold Steps weekdays at noon on 89.3 Moody Radio. When Mark’s dad was 60, just before he went to heaven, he shared with Mark that he felt he hadn’t done much for God. He was so wrong! Find out what so many people had to say about Mark’s dad at his funeral and how that was a turning point in Mark’s life. Share this if it encourages you!
