Today, I have a day off from work. School is out, and I am trying to get more stuff done for the wedding.
I was pushing the little man to get bathed and dressed, etc. He headed for the playstation after he had finished getting ready and I told him he wasn't ready to get on the playstation yet...
Wow, you would have thought I had just cut off his right arm! I told him to get his bed made and to spend some time reading his kids Bible. Now he is not one whom you have to guess what he is thinking. He stormed out into the hall, threw the Bible down on the floor and screamed.
"Here's your stupid Bible."
In a not so calm tone, I told him to never call the Words of God stupid because He is the one who loves us and made us and absolutely adores us. I said the playstation was entertainment and it couldn't love us...etc., etc. You get the picture.
He started crying and said he was sorry and it dawned on me just what I had said.
How many times do I emotionally throw down God's Word. Maybe I don't call it stupid, but my actions speak loudly that I view it as stupid. How? By not trusting the very words He has spoken to me either personally or through His Word!
Wake up call!
The little man is quietly reading in his room and I am about to do the same!
