So sorry!

Thursday, June 15, 2006 (12:57 pm)

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

We've been talking with our two year old, Elianna, about what it means to be truly sorry. Lately she's been refusing to say the words "I'm sorry" when she does something wrong. Instead, she'll lean over and give us a little peck on the lips and hope it'll get her off the hook. And.well, I have to admit, it usually does.

But recently I thought of a common scenario and had to ask myself. What would we feel like if one day Elianna realized that she could consistently disobey us and rationalize that "It's ok, no matter what I do, they'll always love and forgive me". I can tell you, I think it would probably really hurt. We want our kids to be loving and honest and behave well toward us and others.

How much more must our heavenly Father want these things from us? How must He feel when we consistently allow ourselves to behave badly because we know He's a loving and forgiving Father?

I don't know about you, but I need a radical change of heart today. Let's ask the Lord to do some open-heart surgery today. We need to be the kind of children who yearn to love the Lord and put Him and His will above every other desire. There's so much work to be done!
