c. Because I find it hard to admit that I am Wrong
When your mom tell you to clean your room, you almost always ask yourself, «Why?» and «What for?».
Obeying can be very difficult, especially if what you have been told to do goes against your will, that is, you don’t want to do it.
But if you’re obedient, you will do it because you will recognize that it’s the right thing and since you love your mother a lot, you know that she’s trying to teach you to be orderly so that you can do well in other more important things in life.
However, if you’re disrespectful and you answer your mother badly, it will become increasingly difficult for you to obey, you will become angry with everyone (even with yourself), and you will feel bad.
The Bible teaches us that because of sin we are all born with a great tendency to disobey and it’s very difficult for us to be obedient. To be obedient, you need the help of God, and you just have to ask for it.
Have you ever thought about who was the first person to disobey in this world? First it was Eve and then Adam. What was the first thing they did after taking the fruit of the tree that God had told them not to take? do you remember? They were scared and hid behind the bushes, so that God would not find them.
We do the same. When we make a mistake or disobey, we always try to cover it up and hide ourselves. But can we hide from God?
Of course not! Our Teacher or our mom may not have noticed yet, but they surely will. Besides, God always sees us and knows what we are doing and saying.
It’s not to repent, to Recognize that we have made a mistake and ask for forgiveness. You will feel better and you might even get a reward.
In your Prayer Journal ask Jesus to help you always obey out of love for God and your parents.
