We Make Time for Things and People We Consider Important

neglected mom, neglected Lord
When we're hurt by the neglect of others, we can focus on our relationship with God...

Many a mom has made significant sacrifices to raise her children only to have her children forget about her when they leave home.

We can understand that human situation, but we often forget about our attitude as God's children.

Our Heavenly Father made the greatest of all sacrifices for us.

We can never repay Him, but we can show our appreciation in significant ways.

So why are we sometimes stingy with our prayers, praise and time in God's Word? Why do we sometimes take Him for granted when He loves us more than any mother could love her children.

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” [says the Lord]
Isaiah 49:15 (NIV)

Today let's ask God to help us become grateful children who daily show Him how much He means to us.
