“He said to them, ‘You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.'” Luke 16:15 NIV
Read: Luke 16: 13-15
Today, we celebrate ‘Father’s Day’. We set aside this time to honor those special men we love.
Perhaps you have seen late night reruns of a 1950’s TV show, “Father Knows Best”. The premise was the dad of the family knew what was best for his family, which he should. Through each show, the theme was played out. The results proved the wisdom of the dad and were easy to understand.
This concept is based on the life we have with God. ‘God knows best.’
We have hopes, desires and wishes. It is important to understand what we take to God and how we take our prayers to Him. The more we understand the reasons we want this or that, the easier it is to understand why and how God answers our prayers.
Do you go to God with a ‘wish’ list or with a desire based upon a faithful hope He will answer you? Hopeful desire is not a wish list for every whim we may have. Understand ‘God knows best’. At times, you may disagree or not understand your Heavenly Father. This is not a time to question God, but to learn and grow from His wisdom.
Today, do the right thing. Do whatever is necessary for your earthly father to make him feel like he is the most important person in the world to you. Tell your dad how much you love him and apologize for the mistakes or errors you made. Then, do the same for God!
“God knows best!”
Today’s Prayer: “Father, thank you for knowing what is best for me. Forgive me for the times I have not been obedient. Help me to live today as you desire me to do. Amen.”
