Sabbath

An Adorable Man reminded me of this simple principal. Our Savior relates to us in one of three ways.

Child, "Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often would I have gathered thee as a hen gathereth her chicks."

Servant, "Well done thou good servant, because thou has been faithful in a very little."

Friend, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. "

He Gave His life for each of us, to Him we are all His friends, how we relate to our Savior is in our hands. We can cling like a child, serve in hopes of pay, or embrace wholly with open heart our dearest friend.

Blessings

I don't know about other people but I find I swing between the three. I know I need to rest in the assurance that he is my best friend but some days I just feel like I'm clinging on like a little child. It's prayer that changes the perspective. Prayer changes lots of things:)
