Sample text

Let’s begin by reading James 4:1-2: “What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. ” Dad points out three truths: 1. Conflict is worse than we think. 2. Conflict is simpler than we think. 3. Conflict is easier to resolve than we think. Let’s start with the bad news: Conflict is worse than we think. I doubt that many of us consider our mother-daughter conflict to be as serious as it really is.

Not only do they acutely require our advice, correction, and leadership, but they also need our friendship, encouragement, and comforting presence on the road to godliness. Our daughters don’t arrive at Destination Maturity on their thirteenth birthday. Rather, they are being propelled into a period of serious growth potential. The vital significance of a mother’s godly influence and friendship during these years cannot be overstated. I can imagine you responding out loud to me as you read this chapter.

He doesn’t just put mothers and daughters together like a guy in a deli slapping meat and cheese on bread. God has placed us in the exact mother-daughter relationship that He desires. Psalm 139 informs us of this: “In your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them” (v. 16). Now we don’t usually apply this verse to the family God has arranged for us. But think about it—if all your days were ordained, including the day you were born, then whom you were born to (or, moms, who was born to you) is no accident.
