"I should have sent my parents something. Well, they’ll get this after I get home, but at least they’ll know I was thinking of them."
You buy the postcard and quickly scribble some words on the back of it.
“I had a great time. Love you both.”
Then you sign your name and shove it into the closest mailbox you can find. You return to you group of friends and soon forget about the postcard until your parents receive it a few days later. They are pleased to get something from you, but would have preferred something longer with more meaning.
That is how God feels when we don’t take the time to talk to him. He enjoys communicating with the children He dearly loves. But so many times we think we don’t have the time to talk to him. When we should be thanking Him for the vast amount of blessings He has bestowed upon us, we often hurriedly ask Him for a number of things and then quickly end our conversation with Him. Prayer should be taken seriously, a fact clearly proven by the desperate prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane. Just remember, like any loving parent God would sometimes like to receive a letter instead of a postcard.
