You never know the kernels of wisdom you will learn when you attend a Bible study, I don’t remember the official topic, but I do remember the parenting advice I wish I had received years earlier.
Only bring new information in your pleas. Don’t tell me the same old stuff.
Children want parental decisions reversed, and wearing down the court is a familiar tactic. Karen gave the child a chance—with parameters for the battle. The child could only come back if he had information Karen didn’t know when she made her decision.
Even better, Karen made a spiritual application. “Doesn’t God think the same. Don’t keep confessing the same old sins. He has dealt with them. Bring him new information about your sins.”
God buries our sins in the depths of the sea and then puts up a sign that reads, “No fishing.”Corrie Ten Boom
Thank you, Karen.
