real encouragement for real homeschooling moms

great thought #51

“The gospel shows us a Law that must be fulfilled (destroying our pride) and a Savior that fulfills it completely for us (destroying our despair). Instead of obeying to make God indebted to them, Christians obey because they are indebted to Him. The difference between these two ways of morality could not be greater. I want to preach that Christian morality is a response to grace, not a means to grace.” ~ Tim Keller
