Today I went Christmas shopping for my Godson, and as usual I spent a bit more than I should have done. But it is something that will bring much happiness to him and hopefully his parents, or at least give them some peace. When I was shopping there was so many toys and other things that I saw that I would have loved to have bought for him but he is not old enough yet to play with them safely.
Now this little boy is more important to me than almost anything else in the world, I would do anything for him(except to change his dirty nappies) and love playing with him and watching him develop and grow. As someone who does not do well around kids and does not normally find himself comfortable around them this is a new experience. But anything he needs, anything he wants I will do everything I can to make sure he gets it.
Now if this is something I can do for my Godson, how much more will God do for us as his children.
"Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
The feelings we have for our own children and family are nothing compared to what God feels towards us. There literally is nothing God will not do for us, nothing God would not give to us if we need it. He is a fantastic and amazingly generous God, He loves each one of us as His children and will treat us as such.
This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.
