I often think that children’s messages in church teach as much or more than the regular sermons and this is a prime example.
We all get in trouble. Sometimes intentionally. We want something and decide to break the rules.
Sometimes we like to walk on the edge. There is something exciting about seeing how close to the edge you can get without falling. But in this scenario, there is no room for error. A little push or the wind blows the wrong way; down we go. Taking whomever is along with us.
Sometimes we get into trouble through no fault of our own. We get pulled down with others or we get blamed when things turn bad. These are the more difficult cases.
Do we still ask for forgiveness? Do we still turn to God in prayer? I believe we ask God for guidance in these difficult cases. He will show us our role and we go from there.
