EQUAL BEFORE GOD
My life has been so busy of late that I have not done some of my chores around the house. Well that is my excuse at least. Rosemary my wife, still wants the chores done however. She says to me, “you live in this house and we all have to do our part.”
To try and get out of chores I have been thinking of saying to Rosemary, “but I talk to thousands and thousands of people in over a hundred countries around the world on television and on the internet each day. Surely I don’t have to do the chores.”
I have a feeling that this line of argument is not going to work. I know that Rosemary is just going to say, “well that’s good you can talk to them after you have done your chores.” (I can hear a whole number of wives cheering right now!)
It does not matter in life who we are, what we have achieved or what we look like, all that God sees when he looks at us is a son and daughter. God does not tolerate grand standing or people thinking their position is more important than someone else’s. All God looks at when he sees us is our hearts and our desire for Him.
We can even fail over and over because we are frail and weak and we would still be more blessed than the person who takes pride in what they do thinking God would be pleased with that.
Having finished writing this you know what that means? I have to do chores and now there is written evidence that I think I should! Oh dear.
“Rosemary what has to be done?”
