1 Kings 2:1-46; Jeremiah 10:1-25; Ephesians 4:1-16

He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs
with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead
those that are with young. Isaiah 40:11

The almighty God measures the waters in His hand and heaven
with a span. He calculates the dust of earth and weighs mountains
in scales and hills on a balance. Yet how tenderly He shepherds His
sheep. Our verse tells us He is particularly gentle to mothers with
young children! Dear mother today you may be feeling the pressure,
tiredness and discouragement that sometimes comes with
your task. The responsibility is overwhelming but “cast[ing] all your
care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7, NKJV). —Jim Paul

Why should I carry anxious thought or care,
With God as Father I’m not in despair.
— J. Danson Smith
