Do you remember…?
When we were young our parents tried to teach us certain things–if we had appropriate parents–and we didn’t always understand why they told us what they did.
When they told us about choosing our friends carefully, so we wouldn’t get caught up in dumb stuff–did we listen?
When they told us about watching our money–how we either spent or saved would make a difference one day–did we listen?
When they told us not to get involved with–you know–anyone who would influence us to do the wrong thing–did we listen?
When they told us that “boy or girl” was not for us–did we listen?
When they told us–“I can’t wait until you have your own children” –did we listen?
If we’re honest with ourselves when we remember what we were told, we have to admit–we should have listened.
God is trying to teach us right now–every day–through His Word–are we listening? If we haven’t been, it’s time to start, before it’s too late.
While we have a chance, learn to listen to those who are wise; they are wise because they experienced life and with those experiences–good or bad–wisdom grows!
