On Charity

"And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing." (1 Corintians 13:2)

I can be the most accomplished mother in the world, running a business from home, making the most scrumptious and healthy homemade meals, attending exercise groups and doing joyschool for my preschooler, but if I do not show love and kindness to my husband and children I have done nothing.

If my laundry remains undone, my dishes piling up, exercise classes neglected and papers left unfiled, but I have shown love and patience and happiness towards my family, I have accomplished much.
