The Upward Look

“As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, ‘Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.’”
Luke 11:27 NIV
A woman in the crowd was impressed with Jesus as He performed miracles and taught the crowd. In her excitement and enthusiasm, she interrupted Jesus by yelling out a blessing on His mother. A truth can be learned from this experience – what a person does reflects upon his parents. If you do good with your life, you will bring blessings upon your mother and father.
Lord Jesus, I thank You for my godly parents who taught me about You and how to live for You. Help me to be that kind of parent for my children.
