Parenting comes loaded with fears. Dangers buzz in the background. No parent can sit still while his or her child suffers. Luke Chapter 8 tells us that Jairus couldn’t. “Then a man named Jairus, a leader of the local synagogue, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come home with him. His only daughter, who was about twelve years old, was dying” (vs. 40-42).
Jesus heeded his fears…he still does. Jesus heeds the concerns in the parent’s heart. After all, our kids were his kids first. Even as they are ours, they are still his. We forget that fact. Wise are the parents who regularly give their children back to God.
Parents, we can be loyal advocates, stubborn intercessors; and we can take our parenting fears to Christ.
