Truly Great Parents

This sermon is based on Luke 1:46-55. SERIES OVERVIEW: Parenting is impossible, and nothing is more impossible. And, at the same time, nothing is more important or more wonderful. And kids are great (unless they are being impossible, which they tend to be, oftentimes). Now, for impossible times like this, what we need is the Bible. But the Bible is not a “How-to Manual” that gives five-easy-steps to parenting success. Instead, the Bible speaks grace into our lives so that we have hope in times of need. And the Bible gives us principles so that we can have a clear vision for what’s important in life. And the Bible inclines our hearts to wisdom so we can learn to navigate life. And the Bible gives us plenty of examples of bad parenting so we can learn from their mistakes (and yes, it also gives us a sufficient number of examples of good parenting, too).
