1 John 2:28-3:6

We are privileged to be called children of God but there are responsibilities that come with this blessing, which we must embrace and endeavor to fulfill.

While his friends would go and play at the new shopping complex in their village, Mabasa chose to stay at home and learn carpentry from his grandfather. There were days when he wanted to join his friends and experience freedom from this responsibility. However, he rejected his urges and instead chose to take advantage of the opportunities that were offered him. It paid off. Today, he is the owner of the largest furniture manufacturing firm in Zimbabwe. By choosing to embrace the privilege bestowed upon him by his grandfather, he now reaps the benefits of his choice.

God provides us with the guidance, wisdom, and opportunities to become the kind of people he can proudly call his children. However, as children of God, we are responsible for detaching ourselves from worldly comforts, peer pressure, and disobedience.
