God's Children

God makes Himself known to His children,
Each and every day…
Embracing all of us in a variety of ways.

From a timely word by a close friend…
To the warmth of the sun at winters end.
God makes Himself known to His children,
Each and every day.

And we, like children often clamor for endless blessings,
Always expecting immediate attention…
Giving no thought to transgressions,
Routinely resisting accountability with our strongest objections.
And still,
God makes Himself known to His children,
Each and every day.

Children often measure love by how many times,
Parents yield to their childish whims…
Or measure love by how many times they,
Escape their need for discipline.
And so,
God makes Himself known to His children,
Each and every day,
And when God makes Himself known to His children,
He does it in the most appropriate way!

Artist's Description

This was inspired by watching and interacting with three of my grandchildren this past weekend. It was interesting to watch the youngest always looking for attention, the middle child, always trying to see what he could get away with, and the oldest boy appreciative polite and helpful. This seemed somehow symbolic to me of many Christains and their level of maturity in the faith.
