Look at me!I need to
It is a mystery to me, but as was the usual case, when our
children were small, and the telephone rang, it seemed to always be a signal
for my children to act up.
Thus ensued the resulting arguments, and word fights, (they
were not allowed the hitting kind of fights.)
Most of the time, the telephone conversation was cut short
in-order to bring peace back into our household.
Were my children making a demand for attention?Was it something that happens in other
households?I never actually discovered
the answer but could only surmise.
“Look at me, Look at me,” called our young children when
they accomplished a task or an achievement that was significant in their
immature life.To ignore them was
unthinkable and they needed this reassurance that they were doing well and
learning at best.
Today our children are no longer under our roof, and most of
them including our grandchildren have their own smart phones with their own
agenda.They are busy with their
multi-tasking work, school and play.
Back to our house hold today, it does not take the telephone
to ring.We have two dogs who equally
demand attention.If one gets scratched
behind the ears and spoken to, quickly rushes the other one pushing their way
to get in between and to be number one.
There seems to be a driven force within mankind and even
animals to be recognized.To be seen,
appreciated, understand and accepted.
I am reminded where Jesus instructed us about our good
works, that they are to be done in secret and not competing for
Jesus must have been referring to the mature believer.
Because there are times when it is necessary and important to give honor where
honor is due.
It is not only new believers who need encouragement that
they are doing a good work as they serve the Lord, but workers in your church,
including your Pastor.A word spoken in
earnest kindness does lift the spirits.
Good words spoken are like jewels gifted.Have you given any good words lately?
