Daily Nugget

C. S. Johnson shares this family lesson: “My son, Michael, was four years old the night I found him sobbing uncontrollably in the hallway. Concerned, I knelt next to him and drew him close.“'What’s the matter, sweetheart? Are you hurt?’ He shook his head and turned to me, but I was unprepared for his response. “ ‘Daddy said a bad word to me!’ he sobbed. I almost laughed out loud. I had known my husband 12 years and had rarely heard him raise his voice. But Michael had heard him say something, and I was curious enough to want to know what it was. “ ‘Honey, what bad word did Daddy say?’ And seeing a chance for sympathy, my sensitive four-year-old stopped crying and blurted out—‘Obey!’ “I never think of that incident now without asking my Heavenly Father to keep me from believing, as my son did, that ‘obey’ is a bad word.”
God, may my walk with You be in obedience, not just carrying out the letter of the law, but following the spirit of Your intent. Amen.
