Attention is a Virtue


"By the way we parent, we train
 our children to have obedient ears ~
Or, disobedient ears, lazy ears, dull ears, defiant ears,
resistant ears, gullible ears or even forgetful ears.
What kind of ears are you training your children to have?
When you ask them to do something,
but they take no notice of you,
you are training them to have defiant ears.
When you ask them to do something,
but they delay doing it, they have dull ears.
When you ask them to do something,
but they don't bother doing it until you have asked for the sixth time,
and by now you are shouting, you are telling them
that they do not have to obey until the sixth time!
You are producing lazy ears.
What will God have to do to get their attention?"
