So we don't take it out of context, the excerpt is from Deuteronomy 6 which talked about how to respond to our children's questions on why we obey the word of God.
The principle shared here applies to every aspect of life - Christianity is not a religion
- it is a distinguished lifestyle.
Just 2 days ago, we talked "briefly" about Chicken, Ostrich and Penguin-type parents. As parents, we all have to take care of our children and some of us are "ostrich-like" parents who don't have the wisdom required to do that. Though common sense is not common, believe me, it takes a lot more than common sense to raise a child right. God has graciously gone beyond common sense and made wisdom freely available - all we need to do is ask:
"But if any of you lack wisdom, you should pray to God, who will give it to you;
because God gives generously and graciously to all." (James 1:5 - GNT)It's a great relief to know that: "He will not rebuke you for asking." (James 1:5b - NLT)
