Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”
Over the last few months I have been quite busy with things at home, my job, and my 3 year old young’n! I think the last time I published my thoughts here was back in May.
To my regular readers, please forgive me.
Along with being busy in a lot of areas in my life, I also haven’t really been inspired to write much. I feel now though that maybe it’s time to get back to it.
I’ve been trying to spend a lot of time with my son here lately. With my work schedule the way it is, and then having to occasionally get babysitters on top of that, I don’t get to see my boy a whole lot. When I have him to myself I try to get him outdoors as much as I can. It’s very important to me that he grows up with a good understanding and love for Gods creation all around us. I feel like if he has a firm grasp on what God did in the beginning, then hopefully with having a love for the outdoors, he will grow a love for the one who created it all. That is my sincere hope.
But I also observed something as well. There were a few times that I’d have to get after him and make him listen to me in obedience. He would naturally get upset as any child would do, but then in a matter of minutes he was over it and asking me to show him something again or tell me “come on Da-Da!” as he would laugh and run in the grass along the mountain path. It got me thinking about what a good model of forgiveness that is.
Even if it’s just in your own backyard.
