Mouse Proverb
©
by

Stephen A. Peterson


Two mice decided to visit their local peanut farmer’s barn. While the older mouse was enjoying his peanut meal, the younger mouse ventured out on a search for additional food sources. Finding an additional store of food, the younger mouse rushed back to the barn with the good news. “Hey, I just found a huge store of food,” the younger mouse said, “Hey, I just found a huge cheese factory! There’s cheese everywhere! The only problem is that all of the cheese is locked up in see through, temperature-controlled refrigerators.

“You couldn’t find any loose cheese anywhere to munch on?” asked the older mouse.

“Nope!” said the younger mouse. “Everything was in those refrigerators.”

The older mouse momentarily stopped his chewing on a huge peanut, turned to the younger mouse presenting an angry look on his face. “Can you not talk to me about work while I’m eating and trying to digest my food! Cheez! Numbskull!”

This mouse tale can often be applied to many Christians in their relationship with God. Many Christians become satisfied with what they have acquired in life. Contented with what they have and where they are in their Christian walk they lose interest in the challenges and issues of the world that affect Christianity, the nation and their families.

Likewise, young people come to the their parents and people they trust seeking wholesome, honest answers and responses to life’s questions, or just to present the good news of their life’s discoveries only to be pushed aside by unwilling parents and adults. Rather than walk with them and provide them with our knowledge and experiences, we force them to walk alone. We tell them we don’t have the time, we’re busy!!! Or we fear them because they are teens and the challenges the youth often present adults and their parents are too difficult to deal with and, in some cases understand.

We who are adults and parents should re-assess our values and our relationship with and to the children God has chosen to give us. We should not be afraid of our teens but understand that they do, indeed, look to us for leadership, fellowship and guidance in the final years that they will be with us. Likewise, we should never be afraid to approach God when we have sinned. There is nothing we can do that would cause God to reject us. We need to constantly tell ourselves and our teens that “God IS love.” And we do not have to be perfect to be loved by God. Ever!
