Remember The Three Little Pigs? It’s a favorite story in my home. The three little pigs each build their own home. Each style and the materials they used are different. They all apply different levels of effort. We have all seen the lesson in that. Work hard. Don’t be lazy.
I’d rather be like Jesus than like this crazy, hungry, wolf.
Psalm 30:5A (NLT) says “His anger lasts for a moment, but His favor lasts a lifetime. . .”
When Nevie was two she climbed up on my counter and opened a honey jar. She covered herself in honey, hair and all. Then she began to paint the wall with it and that's when I discovered her. At first all I saw was the mess and the work her trouble would cost me. I started huff and puff and ordered her to stop. Then she looked up with this completely clueless expression. She was simply having fun. Suddenly my anger was replaced with laughter and I attacked her cleanup with love and patience.
Moms, Let your anger last for a moment and your favor last forever. Leave the huffing to the wolves.
