the other day Kendra asks Tallie to get a hair band from the bathroom so she can finish doing her hair. Tallie thinks this an opportune time to pose the question, “why do i have to do all the work around here?”
What a clear portrayal of the ignorance of many of our petty complaints in the face of God’s service towards us. It is his joy to bless us and give generously to us but much of that joy is destroyed when we fuss about the small part he may ask us to play. That small part is meant to draw us into His own “joy of giving”. To become more like Him is our ultimate joy…I hope i can remember that the next time the crabby cloud settles on me.
