We do a lot of things for our kids. Maybe the most important ones aren’t these great big giant super hero moves. But the more important things we do are the behind the scenes mind grueling day to day things that add up to “being their for them”. Lets face it the picking up of your child’s dirty socks will not end up in the toast at their wedding. But the mom was always there for me she was tirelessly on my side, will. Unfortunately we can’t reach that status of “always being there” without first going through the exhaustive state of “always being there”. Remember what you do does matter. No matter how small and inconsequential it seems. God is watching you and saying, “Thatta girl, love is shown in the service of others”.
Matthew 25:40″And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
So if you are that mother this weekend, with a sick child that has run out of laundry and can’t sleep because you are listening for the dreaded call of “mom, mom”. Someone is watching and they notice the unconditional love and service you are giving.
