Parenting under pressure?

Those of us well blessed with the responsibity of parenting (NOT something we can really take for granted) can easily let the pressure of parenting get to us.

Shed loads of grief lie dow that road … but HOW do you handle it when parenting poses problems and perplexity?

Amram and Jochebed (yes – these are their real names) had a bit of a snag with their newborn.

The absolute ruler of the land had decreed that all male children of their race were to be taken down to the big river and thrown in. Now, it’s hard enough keeping an average newborn quiet at night, but when there are troops out searching for babies like yours to feed them to the crocodiles …

… THEN you are a parent under pressure!

So what did Moses’ parents (because that’s who we’re talking about) see as their priorities in this horrible parent-pressure situation?

Check the link! (It’ll only take about 5 minutes).
