When my kids were growing up, I was not having whiny, crying over a scratch, kind of children. My motto was “if it’s not broken or bleeding, don’t bother me!” As I’ve gotten older, my compassion has matured, so my grandchildren get the new me, a grandmother with sympathy and a heart for the tiny things that make them uncomfortable. There’s a bandaid for everything! “Are your feelings hurt? Let me get you a bandaid.” Did that bug touch you? I’m so sorry, here’s a bandaid.” It’s amazing how compassion grows as you grow closer to the Father. The Father is just like this with us! He is compassionate when He needs to be and firm when it’s necessary for us to learn. Sometimes He’s firm just so we will submit to Him and let His power handle the situation. Learn to give Him the power and submit to His authority! He’s much more able to handle it than you are.
"Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you. Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. Job 22:21-22
