It has been said: "Everyone will eventually sit down to a banquet of consequences." These natural results, whether for good or for bad, are served up to everyone alike, according to the choices that they make. In the case of a prodigal son or daughter, parents may desperately try to interfere with the cause and effect sequences God has designed ... but wouldn't it be better (for us as well as our children) if we help to make life's pathways clear from God's perspective rather than comfortable from our perspective? Understanding how God works through punishment and reward can be a life-saver for those who put it into practice with family relationships. May this be your experience with your children as a result of heeding this word of wisdom from S. M. Davis.
