Morning Prayer, Tuesday, March 20, 2018 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: DON'T FORGET
Father God, instead of me wanting to judge the younger generation let me pray for them, love on them, encourage them and set the right example for them. Amen.
Psalm 78:6 and Proverbs 22:6
"If you are really serious about preparing your child for the future, love on them and be a good example before them." Desiree was a young lady who seemed all over the place. Her parents could not control her. Even when she was old enough to make her own decisions she still seemed to be on the wrong path. Whereas her parents were always frustrated or angry with Desiree, her grandmother would say to her mother, "Don't forget who you were before you got it right." You see, Desiree's mother had been somewhat of a wild child herself. Reminds you of what your mother said to you, "One day your daughter will do to you what you are doing to me." Desiree's mom ignored those words until one day it hit her. She was looking in a mirror. We sometimes forget that back in the day we as my pastor would call it, "Was't so suchy much." We did some things that we shouldn't have done. Even though we were taught the right way, we made mistakes. We fell off the wagon, got back on and fell off again. Some of us, more than a few times. Young people make mistakes. and yes, sometimes, even though they know the right way, they get on the wrong path. Our part in their process is to love them, pray for them and be an example for them of what right is all about. We can't judge them or try to pressure them into doing right. It never works. They are going to do it their way, until that one day, they will go back to what they were taught and "they will get it." God willing, it will be sooner rather than later.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
