A certain man had two sons whom he brought up in a world of wealth and influence. He loved his sons very dearly and gave them everything they asked for. As the boys grew up, they itched to be associated with their age mates who lived in the same town with them.
Their father gave them the liberty they yearned for, and on went the boys on two different paths of life. One chose to go along with the boys who screamed and shouted whenever they had a request from someone, while the other chose to go with the boys who took the more quiet approach.
These boys took their character home with them and whenever they needed something from their father, just as they’ve been influenced, one of them would ask for his needs while shouting, while the other would sing his father’s praises, thank him for his past deeds and then ask for his present needs all in the gentlest of ways.
But their father who was ever so kind and understanding knew that they acted according to their knowledge and he always gave them their request not minding their manner of approach to him.
So is our father in heaven, he knows we all approach him based on the extent of our knowledge, so whether we approach him with shouting, or in worship, he’ll give us our needs so far we believe in him.
