Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.
If one of your children does something wrong (or even dangerous), do you simply smile and say, “Oh, well, it doesn’t make any difference. We know they’re not perfect”?
You know what is best for them, and you know you need to teach your children the difference between right and wrong. They also need to realize when something is dangerous or harmful. If they never learn this, they’ll not only end up spoiled (and probably disliked), but they could end up hurting both themselves and others. In other words, because you love them, you want to do all you can to help them grow up and become responsible and wise adults.
In a far greater way, God knows what is best for us, and He loves us and wants to help us live the way He knows we should. That’s why He doesn’t forget about us or ignore us when we make bad choices.
Face honestly your need for God, and open your heart and life to Jesus Christ. He loves you so much that He was willing to give His life for your salvation. The Bible’s promise is for you: “You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand” (Psalm 16:11).
