The Chronicles of Biscuit - Thoughts and Opinions

The Chronicles of Biscuit - Stories about our youngest son, Tyler, whose nickname is Biscuit.

Today after school Biscuit and I were discussing something.  I'm not even sure what it was now, but when I corrected him or tried to explain something to him further he said, "Mom, I'm just trying to express my thoughts and opinions.  That's the author's purpose!".  Well!  I guess he told me, didn't he???!!!!

Apparently Biscuit didn't feel like I was letting him explain his thoughts and opinions....and maybe I wasn't.  He wasn't the author at the time, but he was the speaker.  Point made.  I will do better, Biscuit! :)

God is the author of His Word, the Bible.  It was inspired by Him, yet written down on men.  As I thought about what Biscuit said to me about his thoughts and opinions, it made me think about how I treat God's Word.

God's Word is full of God's opinion, but His opinion is truth and the only one that even matters.  There is no other choice.  We have a choice to accept it, but it's not going to change.  It's His thoughts.  It's His Will.  It's His plan of salvation for you and for me.  With God as the author, that was His purpose.

So what do I do with His Word?  Do I neglect it?  Do I count it as insignificant as Biscuit felt like I was doing to him?  Do I disregard it?  Or do I read it?  Do I live by it?  Do I strive to follow His Will for my life by reading those words?

Remember, that is the author's purpose, just as Biscuit taught me today.  God wants us to listen to His thoughts and opinions.  Not opinions that will change.  But opinions that are truth.

Thanks for the lesson, Biscuit!

On this Gratituesday, I am grateful for these small lessons that life with Biscuit gives.  Today when I wrote this little conversation down, I told him why I was.  He seemed pleased that I have a whole section of "The Chronicles of Biscuit" on here.  I told him that some day I'll print them out for him to have and to read.  He'll enjoy them when he's a daddy, I'm sure!  He's provided me with much material and for that, I'm grateful.  Nothing is sweeter than the heart of a child.  They were special to Jesus.  They are special to us.  Biscuit is special to me.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105

Great example! I need to be better at listening, too - and at taking God's Word for the final authority that it is.
