References: Isaiah 9When President Obama received the Nobel Peace prize in Oslo, he had to admit the irony that he just had to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. He accurately stated that we live in a world where there are enemies who will not listen to reason and force must be used as an instrument of peace, but who is the world ruler who will take control and bring about a lasting true peace? The Jewish Prophet Isaiah gives us an answer in his prophecy.
Our kids -- all of us parents agree that they are our priceless treasures, but we don't agree on how to raise them. Some of us are too strict, and some of us are too easy. Who can give us the wisdom and the power to get it right? As school begins and we get back into the routine of life, it's good to revisit this challenge to get serious about helping each of our children to experience the fact that Jesus loves them because the Bible tells us so.
