Like when your first child is born, there’s no way you can humanly handle what it means. It’s impossible. You might as well be given responsibility for another universe. And that’s the point. Our children look at our faces to find their identity, security, and hope. That’s what God wants. Look up child.

“This is a terrific responsibility. Is anyone competent to take it on? No—but at least we don’t take God’s Word, water it down, and then take it to the streets to sell it cheap. We stand in Christ’s presence when we speak; God looks us in the face. We get what we say straight from God and say it as honestly as we can.”

2 Corinthians 2:16 MSG
