The Validated Sin

A mother was notified that her son acted up in school today. The teacher called her and gave her all the details. She explained that her son had been cutting up for a long time and that she should have been notified her about his behavior a long time ago.

So the mother was disappointed and upset. When she picked up her son from school she told him that she was disappointed in him and that she was putting him on punishment. But that’s not all…he was gonna get a spanking!

The young boy explained, “Mama, don’t believe what the teacher said. All I did was this or that…and the rest of that stuff the teacher made it up!” Anyone who has children knows good and well the young man was 100 percent guilty.

Proverbs 21:2 says, “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.” We are guilty of many things, but we think nothing is wrong with most of the things we do and with the philosophies we live by.

A lot of people are going to be in for a rude awakening when God pronounces His judgment on them. They don’t think it’s that crucial, but it is! They don’t see nothing wrong with a little of this or that, but it is! It is dead wrong!

The Promises

I make some outstanding smoothies. All of my recipes are original – well except for one that I copied off the franchise Thirsty’s. I copied their Blueberry Banana Smoothie, but other than that the rest are original.

My seven year old, Darren, came begging me to make him a smoothie one day. In typical fashion he must have said “please” about 15 times to my irritation. “Please, daddy. Please, please, please, please.”

Finally I said, “Okay!!!!!” Then in relief he said,”Yesssss!”

That’s when I burst his bubble. I told him that I would make him one next week, then he immediately got sad. I said, “Why are you sad? I just told you I will make you one. You should be happy, right? Why aren’t you happy?” He tried to answer the question but he just couldn’t put his finger on it. He understands that his dad is full of trick questions, so he’s learning to plead the 5th. (Of course, I made him one later that day. That’s my baby boy.)

Much like Darren with the smoothie, we have the promises of God but are not all that excited about them. If we can’t have them on our term, we get sad instead of happy. We want to control the situation. We have a problem with waiting, but the promises are as good as gold. Don’t be sad.

Say “Yes”

 

My two year old niece, Camille, was at our house for the weekend. She is the cutest lil thing! When she walked in the door everyone started kissing her and picking her up. I noticed she had what looked like some cookies from McDonald’s.

Now let me tell you, Camille is only two years old, and she is as cute as pie, but that girl can eat! And not only that, she can also drink.

I said, “Camille, do you love me.” She nodded her head and signaling yes. I said, “Ok, well give uncle a piece of that cookie.” Then she nodded her head signaling no. And everybody in the room started laughing lol.

We say we love God, but when He asks us to give us this sin or that sin, we nod our head signaling no. When God asks us to take on more responsibility in His kingdom, even though we say we love Him we nod our head and say no. And God has to conclude that we do not love Him after all. He has to conclude that the love we have for Him is as shallow as a mug of coffee.

Today is a good day to say yes.
