ok…. it’s not hot now.

When ever Roman, I’m assuming Levi eventually too, is done with his breakfast / lunch / supper – I take him to the sink to wash his hands. There are times where the water is a little too hot for his liking, at those moments obviously he makes big deal out of it – and usually is pretty dramatic (it is never really that hot) he just likes the water cold…. so I do the dad thing and turn down the water temp and let the cold water flow through, when it is the right temperature I say “ok it’s not hot, go ahead and put your hands in”. I recently realized how alike my relationship is with God on this matter, there are times where things are a little to intense for me and I shouldn’t be in a situation. There are times were I am almost ready to stick my hands in something where I could get burned and God cautions me “that is a little to hot – let me turn the temperature down……….”ok go ahead and put your hands in now…” the lesson obviously comes when I stick my hands in anyway. And I run to Him with burnt hands, he sooths them, turns down the temperature and tells that it is either safe again, or to find another faucet….

  1. Good thought Jason..

    On the flip side.. There are times, when my water is just not hot enough and I find myself thinking about what Jesus said about being lukewarm in Revelations. My prayers turn to Lord, Heat me up!

  2. I love how you make super awesome similarities in your relationship with your children and our relationship with God. Love it.
