-Today’s reading was Isaiah 1-6
Isaiah 1:2- Hear, O heavens, and give ear O earth, for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.
The Lord has molded us in a certain way and many have decided to go against that and rebel against God.
As I read that verse this morning all I had the news faint in the background. Of course as many have read and watched there is yet again another incident happening in Baltimore right now. Lately is seems the younger generation mine included has gone to many extremes an it seems like this is now to normal thing for many. As a mother of 3 young children this scares me so much! I’ve begun to ask my self these questions. When my kids get older are we still going to seeing these extremes all the time? Will they have it worse than what we are seeing right now? How can I protect them? Whether this becomes the norm for them or even if it is worse it seems like the only way I can try and protect them is by teaching them what is right and wrong and instilling in them God’s word. I know the day will come when each one of them will rebel against us at some point but we will try hard to help keep them on the right path and one that is filled with a relationship with God and one that they realize we aren’t the only ones raising them that God is raising them as well. We hope that they will be able to stay on a righteous path and continue their relationship with God long after leaving the nest. We as parents can only do as much as God has. He has nourished us and brought us up. If our children rebel against us and God we will do whatever we can to try and bring them back to the path of the Lord but hopefully with the guidance of God throughout them growing up won’t have to worry bout a mass rebellion like we are seeing in the news so often theses days.
Tomorrows reading will be Matthew 1-2
May God bless your day!
