Sorry to be so late getting this post. My routine has been disrupted by my little visitor. That's all it took for me to forget. It's such a challenge to be me!!
This may be a strange topic for my blog but we're celebrating victory around here. My grandson used the potty instead of his diaper. Anyone who has changed a diaper knows how important this is not only to the "changed" but also the "changee."
We had gone to the store and bought him a set of transformers. He was told he could play with them if he went on the potty. I put the box in a prominent place and talked of how much fun it was going to be when he was able to play with them (hey, I was not above a little bribery in this situation).
Well, I guess that did it. Amazing how looking forward to something will make you do a task. He is now happy playing with his transformers and I'm happy not having to change diapers!
Sometimes I find the same thing true in my spiritual life. Although I do not think it is a task to read the Bible, it does take discipline to spend time studying it. I do it because I look forward to the reward. God promises me a gift. As I read, I get to know God better. Astounding! What can be better than that, I ask you? Much better than having a transformer for a reward!
Thankful the Bible gives me the reward of knowing God better, Gloria
