I got the follow message last week from one of my aunts. Funny how God sends you a reminder at just the right time in life. My oldest child has been a bit of a challenge this last week and a half. It must be the "terrible threes" kicking in because he has not wanted to listen and/or follow directions at all. I love him dearly, and I know this too shall pass. Enjoy.
GOD created children, and to those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students...here is something to make you chuckle.
Whenever your children are out of control,
you can take comfort from the thought that
even God's omnipotence did not extend
to His own children.
After creating heaven and earth,
God created Adam and Eve.
'Don't what?' Adam replied.
'Don't eat the forbidden fruit.' God said.
'Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit?
Hey Eve! We have forbidden fruit!'
'Do NOT eat the fruit!' said God.
'Why?' replied Adam and Eve.
'Because I am your Father and I said so!' God replied,
wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants.
'Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?' God asked.
'Then why did you?' said the Father.
'I don't know,' said Eve.
'She started it!' Adam said.
Having had it with the two of them,
God's punishment was that Adam and Eve
should have children of their own.
If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself.
If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?
Until next time...
