LISTENING TO OUR TRUE PARENT

As a father of three, I've often thought about the nature of parental love. I have found that a parent's care is one of the strongest and most enduring expressions of human love.

In the Bible, we find a dramatic example of parental love in a story concerning King Solomon. The king was called upon to settle a dispute between two mothers who had just given birth (see I Kings 3:16–28). In the story, one of the babies died, and both women claimed to be the mother of the living child. After the king heard their testimony, his verdict was to cut the baby in half and give one half to each mother! One would expect emotional outbursts from both mothers after such a terrible statement. However, this did not happen.
