It's time, 4:10 PM in my town. What time is it on your watch or wall-clock? Some times we ponder of what to say, but we now open our bible to our random blog and see where the Lord will take us today. Perhaps I should ask, what question is on your mind today? I don't know. But God does. Ask him right now that question and into the frying pan! Why you make a query of your thoughts let me turn to 2Kings 14:1-6 where it says, ["... 1 In the second year of Joash the son of Joahaz, king of Israel, Amaziah the son of Joash, king of Judah, began to reign. 2He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jehoaddin of Jerusalem. 3And he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, yet not like David his father. He did in all things as Joash his father had done. 4 But the high places were not removed; the people still sacrificed and made offerings on the high places. 5And as soon as the royal power was firmly in his hand, he struck down his servants who had struck down the king his father. 6But he did not put to death the children of the murderers, according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, where the LORD commanded, "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. But each one shall die for his own sin.] The Lord has a especial place of mercy for our children. It they grow up in an angry home where there's hate, bickering and right on violence, the Lord does care and he hold us responsible. Yes children they sin on their own. But much is laid on the parents for the care of our children. Let clarify, fathers shall not put to death because of their children... So now have you figured what you wanted to ask the Lord. That nagging question in the back of your mind? Not yet? Let's turn to another scripture. [... 13And the Lord said:"Because(A) this people(B) draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men, 14therefore, behold,(C) I will again do wonderful things with this people, with wonder upon wonder; and(D) the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden." 15Ah,(E) you who hide deep from the LORD your counsel, whose deeds are(F) in the dark, and who say, "Who sees us? Who knows us?" 16(G) You turn things upside down!Shall the potter be regarded as the clay,that the thing made should say of its maker, "He did not make me"; or the thing formed say of him who formed it, "He has no understanding..."?] I told you we were going to put this right into our frying pan! My ipod whissling away on my earphones. Have you figured what you want to ask the Lord? Not yet? Ok...Isaiah is saying what child in his or her heart wants to tell his mom or dad. Dear Parent, I love you. But why is it that I don't see you doing what you say you'll do with your lips? Why the facade? I know more than meets you eyes or heart. There will come a time where I the child will have more understanding than all your years. I don't say this out of pride but maturity to do what is prudent. Wisdom is not for the aged only but all desire to do what is right and best on all them do. So stop hidding on what ever you think is hidding you from me. My youthful eyes have a gift to see cleary. Stop the chirrade. Who sees us? Who knows us?...Stop telling God what to think and heed his instruction, Dad, or Mom...We were formed into womb by God. Who is like God who understands all things and creations like me your child. I call upon him whether you do or not and I am alway praying for your well-being. God bless you Mom and Dad. Sign, Child May you be blessed. Amen thbg
We, as parents, so often reap the seeds we sow.
The Shema: [bible]deuteronomy 6:4-9[/bible] We can hide little form our children, yet we can show them so very much.
Thank you 'Alive' for you kind comment and amen. My burden is that we take this matter so lightly and perhaps to lightly. I too need to change and be the best parent-grandparent I can. If I learn to pray. Then I'll know I'll be victorious. May you be blessed. Amen.
