The other day we were eating lunch in town around 2:30 & the restaurant was empty. My youngest son Steele, 8, couldn't believe no one else was there. We told him this was later than most people eat lunch. Our usual schedule is 2 meals a day, breakfast at 10:30 & dinner around 5:00. When we told him some people eat lunch at 11:30 or so he said, "That seems early, but I guess most kids get up, eat their cereal & get rushed off to school. I'm glad we don't do that." I am too. I thank God for my boys wanting to be with me.
Isn't that the story of the prodigal son? The only thing the father wanted from his kids was for them to want to be with him. Isn't that what God wants from us? If we're too busy, it's not God that made us that way.
