Daily Readings – A Pretty Smart Kid!

Day 1851: Thankful Thursday – count your blessings!

Scripture: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who do His commandments have good understanding; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10

Thoughts/questions: An excellent comparison to our relationship with God is the parent/child relationship. When we see a kid obeying their parents and being aware that they are the kid and their parents’ rules are for their benefit, we might remark, “That’s a pretty smart kid!”

They’ve kept themselves out of trouble and when they are old enough to assume control of their lives, they will be prepared and ready to do so. Same with our relationship with God!

We are a ‘pretty smart child of God’ when we obey His commandments and reverence and honor Him! That demonstrates that we understand who God is and who we are in relationship to the Almighty! We are not to be wise in our own eyes and do our own thing like a rebellious child. Honor your Father and praise Him forever!

Suggested prayer: Almighty God, You are a great and mighty Father! May I be the child You want me to be . . .
