Growing up I was taught to have manners and to respect my elders. I was told to say thank you for the things I received. When I was told to do something and if I disobeyed and talked back to my parents, my father was quick to discipline me.
God is into character development. It’s so important we do not rush in and try to force things to happen. I have learned that God is more interested in developing who I am then in what I can accomplish for Him.
