Question for today / February 25, 2019

I know there are a lot of parents out there so you will understand this question, but you do not have to have kids to answer it.
Does it bother you when you ask your child a question and they ignore you, or their response is uhuh?
I know my parents really did not like it if I did not respond to their questions, It did not matter if I did not hear them or if I just wasn’t paying attention. If I was asked to do something, the correct response was, ‘Yes sir or yes mam’. Then I did what I was told to do even if it was said in the form of a question. If I was being asked a question that required more than a yes or no, I better have had a complete sentence to answer with, especially if it was my father asking the question.
I wonder how many of us answer God in the same way our children respond to us?
Do we not hear Him because we are to distracted?
Are just ignoring Him, in hopes He will ask someone else to do what He is asking?
Do we mumble or give short answers, then put off what we have been asked to do?
I am going to have to take a good long look at myself and answer these questions as well. So read this again later because you will see my answers after I have gone through a self check myself.
