Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck. – Proverbs 1:8-9 NIV
We take great delight as parents when our children listen to what we teach them. Our Heavenly Father is no different because He is pleased when we listen to Him.
As every parent knows, sometimes children don’t listen. Their brains are still developing, so they don’t always understand what we are trying to say. They can try their best, and sometimes it takes more time and maturity before they understand.
Our God is patient with us and our learning. Whenever we feel frustrated, we can remember how patient He has always been with us no matter how many mistakes we make. Our Heavenly Father loves us and forgives us. He welcomes us with open arms. Amen.
