Generals and Fathers

Although we have fathers and mothers; although we have families, we do not understand as we should how the relationship of parents and family functions. For this reason we return to the known even though we do not like it.

A Nicaraguan proverb says, "the old we have is worth more that the new we have yet to know."

For this reason we search for Generals, Commanders and Chiefs when we need fathers and families. For this reason we act like Generals, Commanders and Chiefs when we should be fathers, sons and brothers. For this reason we like to be apostles and prophets instead of pastors and servants. Yes, even though we do not like people to tell us what to do, we look for people to make our decisions for us instead of somebody to help us develop our relation with God the Father and therefore be responsible for our own decisions and relationships with others.

Yes, God wants to establish his Kingdom here on earth and He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, but we do have the opportunity to know him as our Heavenly Father and develop relationships as children of God and brothers in Christ.

Eph.. 2:19; John 1:12; 1 Cor. 4:15; John 13:34,35
