I think about how many times I repeat the. same. thing. to my kids every day. Everyday. I can’t stand it! At least that’s what I say, over and over (sigh)!
Human beings are curiously deaf except, of course, to things lacking edifying value. Isn’t the wondrous grace of God displayed in how often He repeats Himself to us? Faith, after all, comes by hearing and Jesus, Himself, lamented those “slow of heart to believe.” What did He do with those bewildered believers traveling Emmaus Road? He went from Genesis to the Prophets, revealing Himself in it all! He rose from the dead and had to preach the SAME message again!
Is it any wonder then that, I, a steward over His children find myself in repetitions’ cycle? When I think of my slowness to hear in some areas, I appreciate God’s abundant grace and plentiful patience. Out of this grace received, I extend to my children. I pray!
