A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, but a mocker does not listen to rebuke. Proverbs 13:1
Children are rarely able to see beyond the immediate future. Think about it. For the most part, we’ve all been where they are now. We know the pitfalls. We know the risks. We even know the joys of getting it right. And yet, they rebel and go about things in their own way, and often against our wishes.
Are we really any different in God’s eyes. He knows the pitfalls, risks, and joys. He knows our future.
And still we rebel.
Amazing, isn’t it?
