Last Sunday I volunteered to help with the 3 year old Sunday School class… but I think it was ME that learned the most.
The message we were to share with the children was:
“God wants us to make the right choices.”
Perhaps it was because last Sunday I was coming fresh off of making a couple of not-so-right choices, but this message knocked me over with it’s simplicity.
Really isn’t that was life is all about? A series of choices… and we make good or bad choices and then we live with the results.
As a parent, I desperately want my girls to make the right choices — today, tomorrow and every day after. And when I think about that, something else comes so clear…
I still love my girls the same immeasurable amount whether or not they make good choices. And I think that is the most amazing part of the message… God wants us to make the right choices, but He loves us the same whether or not we do.
When I stop and think about that, it blows my mind.
