A Question to Ponder

I’m reading the book, “Praying the Lord’s Prayer, For Spiritual Breakthrough”, by Elmer L. Towns. I’ve read it before and recommend it for those who want to renew their prayer life and grow in understanding the model prayer Jesus taught His disciples, remembering we, who follow Jesus today are of those disciples.


The question:

In discussing the statement, “Forgive us our debts,” Dr. Towns uses a child disappointing his father as an example of children of God disappointing Him when we sin against another. Upon reading this, I pondered the question:

Is it possible for us to disappoint our heavenly Father?

If you would take a minute, please, leave your thoughts by commenting.  In my next post, I will share my thoughts and some of yours. Thank you.

Have a great weekend and may we each find a place to join with our brothers and sisters to “encourage one another in love and good works.” Thank you for stopping by.

  1. By definition, yes. To disappoint is to fail to fulfill what is hoped for. God has a plan for us and often we stray from that plan (we are allowed to do so by His gift of free will). But in the context of disappointment being manifest in feelings of regret or hopelessness, of course we do not disappoint our Heavenly Father. His mercy is always at the ready. His love never wanes or fails. And that, of course, is the beauty of our relationship with the Father–wherever we go, He will be there waiting for us to return to Him.
