Well, you've read some of the silly and humorous comments from Philip. To be just, I should let you know of the serious, thoughtful ones as well. :) My son is so sweet.
Last Sunday in church after our Pastor had spoken about resolutions and taught about the correct paths to take in our daily walk with God, Philip rushed up to Santhosh in tears. He cried and apologized for "being a bad boy." My husband wasn't sure what Philip was referring to, but told him to wait and we will talk about it when we get home. As we were on the way home, Philip said "I'm sorry for being a bad boy since 2001." I laughed at his comment and said, "Ok, Philip but who said you were not a bad boy in 2000?" I did not understand what he was trying to say either.
As we were eating lunch, Philip explained he had read the 10 commandments during the church service. He cried and said "I did not obey the 5th commandment to honor my parents. I'm sorry for being a bad boy." It was yet another teaching moment about God's grace and forgiveness. The Bible says we all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory (Romans 3:23), yet Christ came to rescue the lost and give beauty for ashes. Unfortunately, even the churched people do not receive or even recognize such a revelation of their own unholiness and unworthiness of such an Awesome God.
I urge you to examine your own life. Pray for the knowledge and skill of understanding that you may be walking in the life God has called you to, and not one of your own desires.
Thank you for your prayers on our behalf! God bless you,
