THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Sometimes children have better vision than we think.
One little girl had just finished her first week of school.
She told her mom, “I’m just wasting my time!”
Mom asked, “Why do you say that dear?”
She said, “Well, I can’t read; I can’t write, and
they won’t let me talk!”
There's no vision better than that vision of BEING what God WANTS you to be!
14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.
15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.
16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.
17 Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Children are funny sometimes.
At times they need correction, and at times they correct themselves, and just need loving.
Sometimes they demonstrate genius, and sometimes they are totally lacking in integrity.
God "faithfully judgeth" His children!
He knows when we need correction and when we need loving!
God knows how to use His "children" to:
form a nation,
or make changes in the world.
Consider the following:
Abraham repeatedly showed weakness in lying,
Sarah laughed at God's prophecy of having a child,
Moses was a murderer,
Rahab was a harlot,
So was David,
Jonah was a rebellious and prejudiced man,
Elijah was a pouter,
Peter denied Christ,
And Paul was a persecutor of Christians.
((And those are only a FEW examples!))
But God corrected them when they needed correction.
God loved them when they needed loving.
And God changed history with those people!
He can do it with YOU too!
Look at all those whom God has used, and know that He can also use YOU!
Get a vision from the Bible of what God wants you to be.
Then, try each day to be that person.
