My oldest Son, Patrick, has reached that age dreaded age! No not puberty or driving, the age of being a cub scout! I know you are thinking thats not so bad but for an inside kind of guy, scouting pulls me out of my comfort zone. This weekend we will be heading to camp out in a tent. I have to honestly admit that I have been dreading this weekend since we decided to do this. I am going, though, because he is very excited about this experience.
You know God has had to do things he didn’t want to do us since we were created. Check out these old testament examples:
Exodus 3:4-5 (New International Version)
4 When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
And Moses said, “Here I am.”
5 “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
Numbers 7:89 (New International Version)
89 When Moses entered the Tent of Meeting to speak with the LORD, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the Testimony. And he spoke with him.
God has done things for us and limited Himself since the begining to be close to us and to speak with His people. So, Patrick wants to go camp in a tent for the weekend, I guess that I can do that to grow closer and to be with him.
