He Wants All Our Attention

Last night, my kids came to the house. They are always the highlight of my day. We were sitting there talking and my smallest grandson, who just turned 6, was giving me all kinds of attention. There is nothing like that loving, when your kids are grown and making their own life and you feel like they don't need you anymore, (even though they really do) to have a sweet little one gushing all over you.

Canyon is his name. He usually sits on the couch with me and we play together. I try to give him my full attention when I have him alone, but when his brother or others are there, I need to share my attention. I was trying to talk to my son and the others and Canyon kept getting closer and closer to me. He wanted me to pay attention to him, as most kids do. He kept saying Nona, Nona. I would say, Just a minute, baby. Let me talk to them for just a minute. He kept on. It's cute how the little ones will take your face and move it, so that you are looking straight into their eyes. He was not giving up.

As I reflected back on that, this morning, it came to me, that must be Jesus with us! He wants all of our attention. He does not want to share us with the world, for He is a jealous God. Are we saying, Hold on a minute, Lord, Hold on? Is He saying our name over and over to get us to listen? I know that He is not willing to give up on any of us. It just made me think twice about sitting at His feet and not letting myself be distracted by other things. I don't want Him to long for me. I want Him to know that I am there. I want to be faithful and willing and full of praises to Him. I want to know that small still voice, when He calls my name. I want to hear, Well done, my good and faithful child.

Exodus 34:14

Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

Matthew 25:21
“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
