Should we bother God with the little things?

May 12, 2013

We had such a great lesson today in Sunday school; last week Claude asked a question should we ask God if it is ok to eat two donuts? I know we do some joking around, but then we get serious and down to business. So Charles studded up on it in the Bible and we discussed it, we are to turn to God by reading His Word and praying to Him. II Timothy 3:16-17 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Then we are to build a relationship with God for when we get to know Him well enough we will know the answer to some of the things we ask Him. Linda put it this way which helped me to understand. She asked some of the children at church, what would your mother say if you asked her for a cookie just before supper? The answer was no, What would your mother say if you asked her to let you go to a sleep over at a friend’s house on a school night? The Answer would be no. Can I have some more carrots please? The answer would be yes. Then she asked how do you know what answer your mom would give to these questions? They said because we have lived long enough with mom to know what she would say. So if we have that relationship with Jesus Christ then we would know what the answer would be about the two donuts.

Do it for the Lord, Colossians 3:17 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:23-24 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Tune in next week for more; of course we would love to have you there in person so come on in next Sunday 09:15. The class is the first door on the right, right after you pass the Cookies, rolls, donuts, sausage and biscuits, and what every else we have plus coffee, water, and juice I think for I always get coffee.
