Do what you are supposed to do

Every once in a while I'm in the middle of saying something to one of my children when I have this "ding, ding, ding" moment. It's in those moments that the lights go on as God teaches me a lesson.

I had one such moment recently. Little One wanted to do something that I was doing, she always does, but this particular time there were a couple of reasons why I wouldn't let her: 1) she wasn't really ready to take on the task - it was beyond her abilities at the moment 2) I had asked her to do something else but she hadn't bothered to do what I asked . I was in the middle of saying to her "If you were obedient in doing what you were supposed to do you might be more likely to get to do what you want to do, but you have to do what you are supposed to do first." Ding! The lights went on for me. I felt like God was telling me the same thing.

Lord help me to be faithful in doing what is before me to do - to be a good wife and a good mother - and to not keep asking to do things that are beyond me at the moment. Help me to realize what is truly important

Luke 16:10 "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much."
