Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 8
Listen, my son,
to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake
your mother’s teaching.
How much more do we need to listen to Our Father in Heaven, who teaches us through the Word. Are you going to read or have you already read any of God’s Word in your Bible today?
Taken from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by: J.M.R.Larman.
Let us just think for a moment – it is good to listen to our father even though we may not always agree with what he says. It is special for us if we do have an earthly father even though he may not be who would like him to be.
Some fathers in this world are just incredible and others may even need our help – however they are family – we belong to them and they belong to us. When in trouble most times we can go to our father for help or just to talk to him and sometime pour out our troubles to him.
But what joy it is when we can share our special joy’s and achievements with our earthly father.
Regarding the Scripture above – we can listen to our fathers instuctions or his help, as the case may be and also remember our mother is someone who can teach us many things.
Well what has this to do with Our Father in Heaven then?
Do you know that we can talk and come to God our Heavenly Father in much the same way as we can to our earthly father and mother. The difference is that God Loves us even more than we can comprehend – He loves our earthly fathers and mothers and wants us to honour them by sometimes just to listen to what they have to say – even though many times we may not agree with what they think or say.
To LISTEN is a special thing to do even with our family and friends. Also it is surprising what we can learn if only we will keep quiet for a while and just LISTEN to whoever wants to talk to us.
