There are Times we are Asking for the Wrong Thing

As a teenager, you have said to a parent: But you promised! On some occasions a parent may tell you we will go shopping tomorrow. Something comes up and the parent breaks that promise. The promise is not broken intentionally. Something came up that the parent had to take care of. For a boy;sometimes it’s a mechanical problem. Dad says; Son, we will fix that tomorrow. Tomorrow comes, Dad is gone.The heart is broken. Whose fault is it? It is certainly not the child’s fault.
Those are reasonable request. A child ask for something expecting the parent to grant the request. For some reason the parent can not or will nor grant the request. The child pouts; you always come through for my older/younger
sister/brother. I am your good child. Make a little extra effort for me.
It is not if you are good or bad. Most parents love all of their children equally.
God is Our Father. If we pray that the evil brother/sister gets punished, we may be the one punished. God does not look at events in our world the same way we do. When we get to heaven and Al Capone is there; are we leaving because he is there. Do we tell Jesus; you let the wrong one in. My dignity
will not allow me to stay here. My theory is; if Jesus goes with me, I’ll go anywhere.

I need your feedback!!!
