This seemingly ridiculous statement is one that becomes more sensible as the years pass. As a parent, it is easy to under- stand how this may be true, but from a child's eyes it's impossible. In the same way, God gives may not like. He knows what is best for us. When awaiting God's answers, remember He has our best interest in mind and at times His answers are hard to accept, Ultimately His eyes are the eyes of a caring and loving parent.
