Should a mother focus primarily, or only, on discipling her children? Life can often be so demanding for a stay-at-home mom, for instance, that the thought of making disciples beyond her own children can seem like an insurmountable task. Maybe if there is only one child in the picture, but as soon as you have more than one, chaos sometimes does not even begin to describe the situation. Not to mention a home that takes time and attention. Is it even feasible for a mother to disciple someone outside of her own children in light of all of her other responsibilities?
These are questions that are being asked all the time, whether said, or unsaid. David and Francis give some biblical/practical principles through which to think, and a real life example to look to. Ultimately they help point us toward Jesus’ model of discipleship as the only sustainable way going forward.
