    GOOD INSTRUCTION

    Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
    I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
    PROVERBS 4:10-11

    Many times I have heard parents lament, "What have I done wrong?" Parents are all too willing to take the blame when their children make poor choices or get themselves into trouble. Parents want so much for their children to succeed and have pleasant, carefree lives. That is why there is special joy in seeing children succeed. Mothers and Fathers can feel pride and take some credit for their children when those children do well. It is an honor to the parents of children who succeed, that the parents have done a good job. When parents take interest in their children and treat them with respect and care, they are giving them as great a gift as is possible.

    Our Heavenly Father has tried to instruct us in the ways that lead to eternal life. He has allowed us to make our own choices, though, and we must take responsibility for them, bad or good. It is His greatest wish that we follow the wisdom of His will. When we do so, it is to His glory as well as ours that we have learned well. By listening to our Heavenly Father, our lives are enriched, and the years of our lives will be multiplied.

    Dear Heavenly Father, You have been such a loving Father. Forgive us that we have often ignored the instructions You have given us for our sake. Help us to follow Your will and remain steadfast in our commitment to You. Amen and Amen.

    Many Blessings to all, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>
