SUPERMOM

April 14, 2010 | admin

In truth, when you boil down all the issues of life that stop us in our tracks, none of them could be solved by brute strength or speed. Superman could no more solve any of the crises in the world today than anyone else.

Think of all the challenges you have faced in your life. How many of them were permanently solved (as opposed to just put off) through money or physical prowess? On the other hand, how many of them were solved through wisdom, insight or just knowing the right answer?

For example, you may be short a mortgage payment, but the reason, and therefore the solution, has nothing to do with money and more to do with your procrastination or some other personal lacking.

It’s not that I have anything against money, I use it all the time. It’s just there are very few tough issues of life that money can really solve. 

That is because, for the really important things in life, and even just the annoying ones like getting a teenager off the couch, Superman is no match for a Mom or Dad. 

That’s because super-human strength is not as powerful as superhuman caring.
