I missed a call from one of my grandchildren this morning. I was working and couldn’t take the call. I was disappointed. I enjoy connecting with them. In our case, all our grandchildren are very far away. We only get to actually be with them maybe once a year. So, to miss a call is a big thing for me.
As part of my devotional time with God this morning I read,
MATTHEW 7:9-11 9″Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”
These verses talk, among other things, about God’s relationship with his children. He gives good gifts to his children because he cares them. I can tell by these words that he values his relationship with his children. I value my relationship with my grandchildren. So, I was disappointed to miss the call. I wonder if God is disappointed when we don’t take the time to call out to him? My bet is that he is so much more disappointed than I am when his children don’t reach out to him.
Have you called out to him today? He values his relationship with you. Take a second and call out to him. He’ll appreciate it…and you will too.
