Reading my daily scripture reading for the day
was interrupted by the screams and cries for help.
To the rescue.
But I did not find hurt... or pain... or injury.
I found the 3-year-old unable to turn on the basement light.
SO, he resorted to attention-grabbing screams and cries to elicit my help.
On the light went.
How much do I act in this same manner?
Instead of going to Father to seek His help... I get my 3-year-old self on.
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot
have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you
do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. James 4:1-3 NIV1984
