Will God Help Me?

There is a story told about a very rich and pow­er­ful busi­ness man, (we’ll call him Bob) who was very select in whom he would give audi­ence to, sim­ply because He was so rich and pow­er­ful that He could do what­ever he wanted, when­ever he wanted.

Rich and pow­er­ful men sought audi­ence with him, peo­ple in high polit­i­cal offices desired his coun­cil. But Bob rarely gave audi­ences to any of them. No one, not even his Admin­is­tra­tive Assis­tants could gain entrance to his office when he put out the word that he was not to be dis­turbed under any circumstances.

How­ever, there were two peo­ple who barged into his office freely when­ever they wanted. Regard­less of how busy Bob was, no mat­ter what he was involved in, his eight year old son Bob Jr., and his six year old daugh­ter Sarah. They were the only ones that could barge into his office when­ever they wanted. No mat­ter how busy he was, Bob would stop what he was doing, open his arms wide, and he would hug his two chil­dren as they flew into his arms. There was no greater joy in Bob’s life than his chil­dren, any time day or night, his chil­dren could com­mand his attention.

Some­times his chil­dren would ask him for things that Bob knew would not be good for them, and because of his great uncon­di­tional love for them, he could not give them some of the things they asked him for. But sev­eral things were cer­tain. His chil­dren had access to him any time day or night, he always lis­tened to what they had to say, and he always enter­tained their requests for things they wanted or needed. He never turned them away or refused to lis­ten to them. He couldn’t because he loved them too much to do any­thing else.

Notice, that no one other than Bob’s chil­dren had access to him at all times, and no one else, regard­less of their impor­tance, posi­tion or wealth, could get Bob’s ear when­ever they wanted it.
