Maybe one of you can help me out. I’ve been thinking about Martin Luther saying that the office of marriage itself has something of a power, like a draw toward good. A person might look at a wedding ring and remember he or she should be faithful. That sort of thing. What I wonder is whether there is a parallel in parenting. On one hand, I believe a child naturally elicits love. Can the love be rejected? Yes. But I think parenthood likewise inspires love, even if that love can be rejected. Can you think of any quotes or thoughts about such a vocational office pull?

From time to time Bible studies or small groups study Family Vocation: God’s Calling in Marriage, Parenthood, and Childhood. Great! Sometimes individuals even contact me to see if a study guide has been developed (No, but maybe soon!). Happily, this time, I was able to have a lovely series of chats with Marie MacPherson of Into Your Hands LLC and Hausvater, resulting in the interview linked below.
