“Dear Lord, I’ve had re­grets about drop­ping out of col­lege to get mar­ried—and now my son re­cently an­nounced he was do­ing the same thing! He won’t lis­ten to rea­son and wait un­til he grad­u­ates, and I haven’t heard from him since we had a huge fight last week. I don’t want to lose him over this, but I’m al­ready heart­bro­ken. He had such a bright fu­ture. How do I watch him throw it away?”

Wis­dom of the Word

Aim for restora­tion, comfort one an­other, agree with one an­other, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

—Paul in his sec­ond let­ter to the Corinthi­ans, 13:11
