Pearl 23: Floating on Purpose

TOPIC: Purpose and Parenting

“At that time Moses was born, and he was no ordinary child.
For three months he was cared for by his family" - Acts 7:20.

All newborns look pretty much alike but Moses' parents saw something in their baby boy that was different. What did they see?  They saw purpose!  While all the other baby boys were being thrown into the river, they kept theirs for as long as they could. Then they complied with the edict, the only difference being they put him in a floating basket first. From there, Moses' purpose kept him safe and directed him into Pharaoh's household. If you have children in your family or work with them, what do you see? Do you see the problems or the potential? Have you released those children to God's will and purpose instead of your own?

Lord, I thank You for the children in my life. At times, I tend to look at their weaknesses and not their purpose in You. Help me to see it clearly and then help me know what I can do to promote and develop that potential. Then give me grace to release them so they can float on their purpose like Moses did on his.
