Your Expectations

Dear God,

Thank You for giving me a life full of wonderful blessings.  You have also said that because of this, You also expect greatly from me.  I know that more blessings are in store if I am faithful in fulfilling the tasks that You have given me.  On the other hand, chastisement and discipline  await if I am disobedient to Your call.

I know from experience and from watching my very own kids that discipline is not fun. We would all rather receive rewards, and as a mother I would rather give away pleasant things.  I believe that You, my Heavenly Father, are like that too...

Please help me to be faithful and true to these expectations, Lord.  Instead of making excuses for why I failed in my responsibilities , I want to be bale to carry them out with joy and cheerfulness in my heart.

But the one who does not know and does things
deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows.
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded;
and from the one who has been entrusted with much,
much more will be asked.
Luke 12:48
