What uncommon things do we want to become common?

Things like:
our children having mutual love and respect for each other.
our teenage children having love, honor, respect and obedience for their parents.
us continually becoming better friends and lovers.
our family totally trusting God in all things and putting our faith in Him to fulfill his promises.

Freedom


By Creg
Digging post-holes, welding pipe, stretching fence & building gates. Sierra and I just recently finished constructing a new fence around the front & side yard so her Golden Retriever, Skye, could have more room to run and be closer to the house. (I think I was bonding with my 15 year old daughter).

With freedom comes responsibility. Chelsa's flower garden is in Skye's new yard. Dogs like to dig in soft dirt. Potential problem. Sierra needs to let Skye know what is good and what is forbidden.

I was recently listening to a CD by apologist Clay Jones about why God allows evil. He said, "God gave us free will, although He could have made us all Golden Retrievers." (They are known for instinctively wanting to please & obey their masters). I found that comment amusing since watching Sierra expertly train Skye with ease. After all, God put the forbidden fruit in the middle of the garden, allowing mankind the choice to follow Him or not.

Skye has done well in her new environment. I wish I could say the same for mankind.
