Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.Psalm 119:18 ESV
As a child, I often thought “Why is the teacher always picking on me?” At the time it seemed not only was I picked on, but a very high percentage of the time! As an adult, I saw things differently. Rules and laws save and protect us and for certain keep us on the right path so that we will learn and accomplish what we very much need to. As we mature in life and in relationship with our Heavenly Father, Teacher . . . it is espectially important! We are created out of His amazing love for a blessed purpose which could result in our hurting ourselves and others if we do not obey!
Our Father God is waiting for us to seek forgiveness when we disobey and His sadness while waiting for us is due to His immeasurable love! How incredible is it that once we repent, He eagerly holds us and leads us to the right path!!
