Do It Soft...


Funny the lessons that we learn from children.

Tonight, Isaac got into trouble. He blatantly disobeyed, and Brian sent him to his room to await his discipline. On the way to his room, he was begging for mommy to discipline him instead of Daddy. He had to wait there a few minutes, as Aunt Sara was leaving. When Brian went back there, Isaac was begging for there to be no result. Of course, that did not fly. He then sweetly asked Brian, "Please do it soft." After Brian was finished...Isaac looked up at Brian and told him, "Thank you Daddy...You did a Good Job." Little sobs coming from in between words.

I think about our Father. How there are times that He has to discipline us... and our response is normally kicking and screaming. And how when it is over, we normally respond with anger and bitterness. I now have a solid example of responding with, "Thank You Lord for that lesson." And I suppose that it is not dishonoring to God, to ask for the discipline to be soft, huh? Just a random thought...
