I am a big whiner. But ya know what I noticed? I aint alone.
The kids and I were supposed to go bowling (I had a free coupon), but I didnt realize it expired until we were inside the bowling place. I was gonna turn around and go home but i thought: ‘Lets do the arcade’
The kids, ecstatic, jumped up and exclaimed their joy.
After a while….they were running low on their credits so I made a decision to get home. I mean they each had pennies left on their card.
My first mistake was telling them “no more” before time was up my second (apparently) was not letting them use their tickets – this time around – to ‘buy’ something.
Oh the complaints and whining i heard. You would think i took away all their privileges and turned into Cinderella’s stepmom. After explaining things out – we drove home in a chilly silence.
Made me think of me…..and how much I am like that with God.
He gives and He gives and He gives. I take and take and take…..no thanks…no gratefulness….just taking. Then when things dont go my way? What do I do?
Whine and complain.
Man how awesome and patient is our God?
