I was at a bus-stop recently waiting for a bus and in meditation with God. I came to thinking about the way people dress and what God thought about it. Imagine a white knitted garment which has no spots or wrinkles and is pressed to perfection. Imagine then pouring black ink on one particular part of the garment. God was using this analogy to represent what it feels like every time we sin against God. We taint the white garment God has for us. God showed us in his word that children are of utmost importance to him. We also see in scripture how Jesus tells us to be like unto children.
Back to my thought, I began connecting the two. I was looking at how children are the way they are mainly because of their parents. When you raise a child, you show them what is acceptable. You largely set the bar for what is right and wrong. Children do the things they do today and feel no way about it because this is what they are taught. With Godly perspective, we can not only look at ourselves, but those after us. God is past, present, future, this means he knows all. If we looked into the future and saw what are children would look like, the things we didn’t like we would look to change hopefully, when we went back to the present. We as believers can do this because God can see that far. I can look at my daughter today being a small girl and allow God to show me her in the future. God can guide me to see what things I should do and what things I shouldn’t.
