I think once you become a parent you begin to understand God better.
When my daughter was growing up I tried to instill in her what was right and what was wrong. She had rules to follow. Rules meant to keep her out of trouble, healthy and successful.
Every time she didn’t follow the rules or disobeyed me she would get herself in a pickle and I would shake my head and think, “She had to do it her way!”
And then I thought, that’s probably what God thinks every time we disobey or don’t listen and do something wrong.
Why do we have to do things our way when His way is clearly so much better?
His rules and laws really are for our own good. We could save ourselves a lot of problems if we just listened to and obeyed our Father.
