Do you ever hear that from your kids?
“I won’t, I won’t, And I WON’T!!! SO THERE!”
Oh doesn’t that raise our ire, stir our hackles and bring on punishment for the child.
Then why are we surprised if we say such things to God and life doesn’t go quite as we planned?
I used the KJV version for these verses because the language has more authority.
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. (Proverbs 8:33, KJV)
They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law. (Psalm 78:10, KJV)
The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. ( Psalm 118:22, KJV)
See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven. Hebrews 12:25, KJV)
Prayer – Lord, give us another chance. Remind us of any place we refused you and help us start again. Amen
