Did Jesus really tell us to hate our parents, spouse, children, siblings and even our own life? If you read Luke 14 you will see where Jesus says this. That is very strange. It doesn’t seem to align with Jesus’ message of love, forgiveness and mercy. It’s hard to believe that Jesus would direct his followers to hate anyone. Let’s look at Luke 14:26 in the King James version to see what Jesus really said.
Getting upset is very easy. Controlling our emotions is very hard, especially when parenting. We are all born with a sin nature; one that doesn’t want to obey. We want what we want, when we want it, and how we want it. Our sin nature makes us impatient, selfish, greedy, and it makes us covet […]
Recently, I purchased an item hoping to foster eyelash growth and eliminate mascara. With anticipation, I began applying my new purchase! After about a month of use, my excitement had waned. There was no visible eyelash growth. My eye lashes had started falling out. I obviously wanted more eyelashes, which did not appear. The expensive endeavor never produced the desired result of longer, fuller eyelashes which was supposed to start happening with the first application of the product. Each of us has been blinded by something. Is it an unfulfilled expectancy, or a “needed” buy?
Why should we fear God? It seems counterintuitive that we would since God is loving, merciful, generous, forgiving and good. If God is all of those things, it would seem that we should not fear Him. So why then would scripture tell us to fear God?
Disciplining our children is hard. It is something we don’t want or like to do. If you enjoy it, something is wrong, as that is not the example of discipline our heavenly Father shows us. God is our example and He is the only one we should follow. God is our heavenly Father, and we are His earthly children. We should discipline our children in the same way that God disciplines us. We should not shy way from doing it, as it is our parental obligation to ensure our children are raised correctly. In that way, they will respect their parents, and have a proper view of God, our heavenly Father.
