How do you think that would go over with a child who is supposed to be practicing first-time obedience? God is long-suffering and patient but that doesn't mean we need to be disrespectful and disobedient.
I was waiting on a personal invitation. A physical confirmation. Lightning bolts and a booming voice from above would have been really great. How would I feel if my child, after being told to do something said "Oh, I was waiting on a lightning bolt or some real, true confirmation that you actually wanted me to do the dishes."
I wonder how many times I say "All the way, right away, the first time" and God says "Isn't that like the pot calling the kettle black?"
What are you waiting for? Are you practicing first-time obedience? Are you following God all the way, right away, the first time?
