Worse Than Children…

Notlistening


A parent tells a child don’t touch the stove cause it’s hot and you’ll get burned, child doesn’t listen, curiosity gets the better of them, child touches stove, gets burned, runs to parent for help, healing, and comfort, learns a valuable lesson that they will literally never forget, doesn’t touch hot stove again.

God gives us guidance, we don’t listen, curiosity gets the better of us, we get burned, blame him and demand an explanation as to why he let us get burned, we turn our backs on him, run away, go out and do the same thing over again, get burned, blame him and demand an explanation as to why he let us get burned, turn our backs on him, run away, go out and do the same thing over again, get burned, blame him…

Granted, one has immediate consequences and the consequence for the other is usually more “down the road”, but when we are individually surrounded by current examples of those down the road consequences that have yet to burn us, the point is the same.
