Why do children get what they want almost every time? I don’t think it’s just because they’re cute.
They never stop asking. And when you make them a promise, they never stop reminding you of that promise. In fact, they don’t forget promises.
And if you must refuse them something, they have to understand why you won’t give them that thing, or else, you become the wicked daddy or mummy.
They don’t make assumptions and they accept anything you tell them.
As we grow, we become more independent and become the fixers of our lives. We stop asking and we forget promises. So there are no promises to remind the Father about.
We make assumptions for God and call Him wicked, when we haven’t even been persistent in our requests at all.
We work our butts off and show Him that we’re working in order to earn the treasures we deserve. Yet, He still tries to say, “Why do you want to kill yourself? In my word, I have promises and I have rewards. Rewards are for those who labour, but all my children are entitled to the promises which are obtained by faith. I never asked you to work for the promises. Be like the little children – they know their entitlements. You have forgotten yours.”
