Read the Directions

This is Ella’s last week of school.  She sat down to do her homework tonight and then I checked it over.  At first glance the worksheet looked like every worksheet she has done all year.  After closer examination I noticed the directions were different.  I asked Ella if she had read them.  Of course she hadn’t because it was the same worksheet she has done all year.  So she passed over the directions and finished the worksheet.  I told her that we can relate this to our own lives.  Each day may look the same to us-get up, go to school, learn, lunch, play, bedtime etc.  Just because things appear to be the same, we may miss something really important if we fail to pray and ask for directions for that day.
