Morning Prayer, Wednesday, January 23, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: PARENTS ARE NOT PERFECT
Father God, even though my parents were not perfect people and at times I didn’t understand that, thank You for gifting them to me. Amen
"Your parents may not be perfect but they may be the most precious gift God has given us.” One of the things that I have never been overly concerned with is fitting in with the in-crowd. Well, let me back track a moment. When I was in high school, I so wanted to be a part of an elite group of girls who were the “popular girls.” They dated the football players, lived in nice homes, had long hair and was fairly attractive. Because I wanted all of that, I couldn’t really appreciate what I did have. Looking back, I realize that my hair was not short at all. In fact when straightened it was long, and thick, and I was not unattractive. We may not have been wealthy, but we were decent. My dad who did not live with us came twice a year and took us shopping. He didn’t believe in cheap clothes so we always got really nice stuff. Kids at school probably thought we were well off. I didn’t appreciate all of that back then. Like most young people you don’t get it until much later in life. Your parents did the best they knew how. They were not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but they loved you and took care of you to the best of their ability. If I had to give out any advice to the younger generation today, it is this, “Appreciate those who look out for you, especially your parents or guardians. God knew what he was doing when he gave them to you.” Sometimes they leave this earth far sooner than they should and you are left with “I wish I had regrets.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
