A Seed of Truth
About the Guest
Sometimes stepchildren are more problematic to a stepparent than a biological parent, because they intuitively know the stepparent is able to handle it-it's a backward compliment. One couple heard me say that and it immediately planted a seed of truth in the stepdad: he wasn't being rejected, he was being admired. This freed him to love his stepson in spite of the outward attitude-and years later his stepson is thanking him. Never underestimate the power of obedience to a simple godly truth.
A seed of truth, planted in your heart by the Holy Spirit, can grow beautiful things.
