Each morning before she goes to school, I tell my daughter that I love her and I remind her to, "Be a good listener and have fun!" While listening and having fun may seem contradictory to some people, we can have fun while listening to God. However, we cannot continue to live in ways that we know are sinful!
God provides us with forgiveness and redemption and while there isn't anything for which He cannot forgive, once we know Him, we should not continue to do things that we know are wrong. Once we know God and accept His forgiveness, we should live for Him and try to do what is right and just. As we live for God, we will experience the joy and blessings that come from knowing Him. We can be good listeners to God's will and have fun as we celebrate His love now and for eternity!
Be a good listener, trying your best to follow God, and have fun in the joy of His blessings!
Thank You for Your love and forgiveness. Help me to follow Your will and grow in my faith each day. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
