Our Father's Eyes

As a child, we obey our parents and then sometimes don't.  We think, "It's our lives.  Why are they getting so bent out of shape?"  

Then we become parents.  We aren't perfect, but we do our best raising our children.  Now we say, "Why won't they listen?  Don't they understand how much we love them, wouldn't steer them wrong, want what's best for them?" 

Recently, I have been seeing things from a new perspective.  Not only do I see my children's behavior and how my heart breaks for them but I see God's heart breaking for us.  We aren't perfect but God is.  He know's what is best for us.  If we'd only listen to him, we'd find peace.
