Calm Down, Repent, and Keep His Commandments

Our ABBA Father loves us, ❤❤❤but He ignores our temper tantrums. He only responds to Faith & Obedience🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

If you’ve ever raised a toddler into a child, you know the stages of emotional manipulation that comes when their will is being conformed into obedience:

– denial “huh?” not acknowledging the instruction
– temper tantrums
– blame-shifting, responsibility avoidance
– negotiation “if I do this, then you gotta…”
– “you don’t love me”
– self-hatred, “woe is me”

This is the same thing we do when our Father in Heaven commands us to repent, mature, and grow up.

Toddlers are so so cute🥰🥰🥰. They are so expressive and talented. They get a lot of likes and subscribes and sympathy. If you’re honest you don’t even really want to discipline them. You enjoy them too much!

He IS patient, and He IS kind, and His mercy IS brand new every morning… BUT HE STILL COMMANDS US TO REPENT.
