Daddy came home for lunch. A fun treat.
Well, it could have been…
One of the kids insisted on sitting next to Daddy.
But the plates had already been arranged.
The family was already seated.
Moving things around would only cause strife.
Pouting, whining, crying…all efforts were made to sway the decision.
Not willing to be flexible.
Not willing to listen to reason.
In the end, lunch was missed. No conversation was had. It ruined the moment.
Daddy had to leave.
Do we too miss out on Daddy?
Do we want our own agenda, do we want things on our own terms?
Do we fuss, whine, cry despite God’s clear reasoning, his gentle answer…
How are you missing out today?
Do you need to surrender your will for His, and enjoy the moment He has for you right now?
