sermon: Instruction in the Morning
Given 30-Jun-12; Sermon #1109a; 33 minutes
Charles Whittaker, claiming that the most important physical meal we eat each day is breakfast, suggests that spiritual breakfast is also the most important spiritual meal of the day. Isaiah counseled us that the early morning hours seemed to be the most advantageous time to receive the counsel of God. Our Heavenly Father taught Jesus Christ during the early hours of the morning, possibly in the form of a dialogue. Jesus learned to teach by asking questions. When it comes to teaching tomorrow, we must learn the basics today, one day at a time. God prepared Christ one day at a time from the time He was very young. Christ used the same methods to teach (questions, parables, etc.) that God the Father used on Him. The pattern Jesus learned from His Heavenly Father He passes on to us: teaching us in the morning, preparing us for our work in the future by teaching us today, moving from milk to meat, and using the same teaching tools as His (and our) Heavenly Father had used with Him. As Christ was instructed in the early hours, it would be useful to partake of our spiritual food in the early morning. As parents, we should take the time to teach our children in the early mornings, steeling them against the evils of the day.
