A couple of weeks ago we discussed different strategies that European countries are taking to increase their birth rates and thus their natural population growth.

Jesus concluded His mortal ministry with a new requirement for discipleship: “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you.” (John 13:34) Jesus gave this commandment between washing His apostles’ feet and going to the cross to die for them and for us.

One of the best relationships for learning this kind of love may be parenting—where we wash our children’s feet (and hands and faces) repeatedly. And where we very nearly give our lives for our children. There may be no relationship where we dedicate more time and energy for a longer length of time than in parenting. Parenting is a perfect place to learn discipleship, including how to love as Jesus loves.Read More
