The scripture reading for today is Luke 7:32, KJV
“They are like unto children sitting in the market place and calling one to another, and saying, We have played with you, and ye have not danced; we have wailed to you and you have not wept.”
I watch my great granddaughter play. Sometimes she entertains herself by coloring or cooking on her play kitchen. Other times she bounces around dancing or singing; and other times she just wants to sit on my lap and cuddle.
Isn’t that how we are with God? Sometimes we are active (perhaps overactive) and other times we want to feel His arms around us and feel cuddled. During this hectic time, take time for all of that. And help us remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
Dear God, Thanks for Your patience with me. Keep me focused on You and Your children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen
