Grace to You

Now this is a special day because it is Mother's Day. I've never understood that because every day is Mother's Day, so know, limit it to one day? But I understand that. I understand the need to sell greeting cards and things like that. I get it. But we're always delighted and grateful and thankful for what the Lord does through precious and godly mothers and we want to note that.

And, you know, I really think that if, if there's any indication of reality, and I think there is, from the conversations that I've heard recently from mothers, some of the mothers in my own family and mothers outside my own family, there's a kind of a serious fear about raising children in the world in which we live, young women who are having little babies see a foreboding future. There's an elevated anxiety about that. Parents are struggling wondering what kind of world their children are going to awaken to in another five years, ten years, or so. There are people who are wondering whether they should have children. And then some of us who are grandparents who know what can go wrong through many years of a generation, maybe even have more concern and anxiety about what the future world is going to bring to bear upon our grandchildren. We hear these conversations all the time. A lot of fear; a lot of anxiety. I talked to a physician friend who said he's prescribing more tranquilizers to people than in the past who have these deep anxieties about what the future is going to bring on their children and on their families. And this is not just a day when we think about that because we're thinking about moms and we're thinking about children and families. But this is also a very special day because of seminary graduation. We had the graduation of the Master's College on Friday, about 250 young people receiving their degrees, and another eighty-eight men tonight, and we're launching these people into this very troubled world--very challenging world--very foreboding and threatening world....
