The Stepmom Who Tried to Set an Example


The Bible tells us that there will be deceiving forces, demons teaching false things, and hypocrites telling lies (I Tim 4:1-2 NIV).

Think about that, stepmoms.  Do you hear lies in your life?  What lies do your hear?  Do you hear lies about you?  About your role as a stepmom?  About your value in your family?  About things you should and should not do?

Thankfully our wise Father knew we would encounter this and provided help!  God tells us in I Tim 4:11b (NIV) that despite evil forces and lies getting spread, we should continue to set a good example with our speech, conduct, love, faith and purity.

Sometimes I wonder how I should respond or how I should take action when I encounter “hypocrites telling lies.”  Today I am thankful for God’s guidance to just continue setting a good example with the way I talk, behave and continue to love.

What are you thankful for today?
