My teenager was really taking the cake this morning, not in a rambunctious way — he was just passively doing as he liked. I kept saying “Turn off your computer and come to breakfast!”
He finally came downstairs and said to me , “I love you mom” to which irritably replied, “If you love me, keep my commands!”
He looked at me funny, and in that moment I got in a deeper way what God means when He says that.
He does NOT mean ‘keep doing whatever and telling me how much you love me dude.’
