The Big Mess
Thursday, June 26, 2014
The other day, Hannah had a good time with her diaper cream. Instead of playing quietly in her room, she decided that she'd "paint." When her mother walked in and saw the mess, Hannah proudly said, "Look, Mommy, paint." She just left the room to cry. Then, she spent the next hour scrubbing the furniture. It reminded me of our relationship with God. God tells us in His Word to do or not do something, and instead of obeying God, we decide to do what we want to do. The results: a big mess. There are consequences to our disobedience, usually for us as well as others, but God is still always there, willing to clean up our mess by forgiving us of our sin. All we have to do is ask.
