My dad always reminds me that:
” Whenever someone is teaching, reminding, or helping you, do not answer with an ‘I know’ instead, say ‘thank you’ for their effort to show they care. “
There are times, when people would always remind me to do something and I answer with a rude “I know, I know” oblivious to the fact that I have somewhat hurt their feelings.
Not many people know this.
One time, I was telling my friend about being able to use the computer lab and use the internet at school, she was sooo excited, then her friend came and said “We already know that” and I felt kind of… deflated…
‘They knew?’ I remember thinking.
Well isn’t that a bummer? I wonder what would it feel like to say “I love you” to someone but not being able to hear it back because they ‘claim’ they already know…
I know God loves me and God knows I love him. He already knows everything. But God wants us to talk to Him. He wants us to have a relationship with Him. Even though He already knows.
