Sts. John Jones and John Wall
"Why do you recite my statutes,
and profess my covenant with your mouth,
Though you hate discipline
and cast my words behind you?"
Hmmmm, seems like I just gave this finger wagging lecture to my kids tonight, er, only in not so many words.
One more thing: God is pretty big on the personal responsibility thing. No blame or back-talk here. He doesn't want lip service, he wants real action. Wouldn't we all love the same from our kids? Read this psalm together as a family today and talk about taking responsibility for your actions.
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for giving me the road map to follow to you. Please forgive me when I stray from it and help me to recognize the times I fall. I take full responsibility for my choices and renew my vow to honor you with my actions as well as my words. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. Sts. John and John, pray for me.
