Father, No! Don't Say That!

When Les-Leigh was a little girl, there was an occasion where I had to tell her that what I had done to her, was wrong. She put her little hands over her ears and screamed, "NO! Daddy, don't say that!" She could not handle the fact that her dad was wrong, and not perfect in her eyes. (she knows better now of course)

I share that with you because there are times when my Father speaks in His Word and I want to put my hands over my ears and scream, "No! Father, don't say that!". Like in Isaiah 43:4, when in telling us how much he cares for us, He says, "I will give men's lives for you."

Did you hear that? God says He loves us so much, that He in His care for us, will take other men's lives for our well being. That makes me want to put my hands over my ears and scream, "No! Father don't say that!"

At the same time it makes me marvel that He loves us, His kids, that much... Wow!!!
