In observing young children I am amazed at what they learn at a very early age. One thing they are taught is that food is for the mouth, not all over the face or in the hair. Other lessons include not to throw temper tantrums, to say thank you and please. A great event in their lives is the day they learn to take their first step. They are also are not to go off or run off on their own and when the children go someplace with their parents they have to hold onto their parent’s hand. Recently while going to my pickup after shopping in a store a small child jerked his hand from his mother’s and darted out in front of an oncoming car. Fortunately the car was going slow and was able to stop in time and the child was not run over. The young child was not even aware of the danger. I realized that after we accept Christ (step one) it is very important that we learn to let God lead us (Psalms 23:1-4, Revelations 7:17). We must learn to listen (step two) to God (Proverbs 4:11, 12) and not do anything on our own or against His will. When we break away from God and go on our own we are in great danger (Deuteronomy 11:26-28, Hebrews 8:8, 9). Make sure your hand is in God’s hand. See you in Church next Sunday.
