A Gift from our Father


Our GIFT to our children:

Cooking lessons from grandmother

Cooking lessons from grandmother

Lyn Leahz posted an outstanding lesson today.  One that parents should take to heart; for it is a gift to us as parents in teaching our children to be self-sufficient but to us as children of God to use our God given talents.

Be sure to read the rest of the story here: Lyn Leahz

His voice softened, “Let me show you. Imagine your daughter kept disobeying you and living rebelliously. Every time she got herself in a bind, she came to you. ‘Mommy, please help me out of this. I’ve made a mess. I love you mommy!’ And so every time, you bailed her out to where the evil people she subjected herself to laughed and mocked and scorned.

“‘Oh, here comes mommy again to save her stupid daughter who doesn’t even love her mother or respect her! Ha ha ha! Look at her come to the rescue again!’

“Now imagine that through all of this, you gave to your daughter a gift so special, you even sweated blood for it. In fact, the gift was priceless. It was special, unique, and precious. You said to your daughter, ‘Daughter, when you fall in to trouble, take this gift and use it. Take extra care for this gift and hold it up high in times of distress! You may be ridiculed and shamed by your enemies, but they can’t touch this gift. Now take it and use it!’

“But instead of using this special, rare gift that was worth far more than any amount of money could buy, your daughter threw it on the floor and shoved it into her closet, burying it beneath garbage and clothing. Still, she called you up when she was in trouble, ‘Mommy, I need your help again! Please, come and save me!’

“You would then say to her, ‘My daughter, what happened to the precious gift I gave to you? Did you not use it as I told you? I have given you the power to help yourself with this precious gift!’

How many times have we given to our children when they spent their allowance on ‘stuff’ and ask for more money?

How many times have we cautioned against driving reckless – just to go to their rescue with a newer auto when they damage the last vehicle we bought from our savings?

Children are deciding to live at home longer and longer, some expecting to bring their new girlfriend, boyfriend home to live in Mom and Dad’s house – while they are still dating!

This is a grand lesson Lyn Leahz, thank you!  And, thank you God for giving you the GIFT to share.

    • She certainly does and this one certainly came close to home for me….not that I could compare my daughter to this – but there are many sons and daughters who could learn a lot from this message.
      God bless. Glad you liked the post
