Teaching Children

Psalms 51:13 Give me a job teaching rebels your ways so the lost can find their way home.

A man helped his son complete his science project for school. This usually means him doing it, his son watching, him explaining it, his son taking notes.

It also on occasions includes the son spitting his dummy and stating “I can do it better without you’. Only to come back later somewhat subdued with the question “Dad can you please help me?”

This story reminds me so much of my early relationship with God. Asking for His help, getting frustrated because He didn’t do things my way. Deciding I knew best and trying unsuccessfully to do things my way. Then having to come back and humble myself before God and do things His way because He is God (my heavenly Father). He not only knows what’s best for me but He also always wants the best for me.
