Parents do not look for their beloved son’s faults, consciously, even if he has such faults. They wish that their son will resemble only their good points. Although they slap their son’s cheek in order to correct his bad behaviour, they regret what they did and commiserate with their son’s pains. Such is the heart of parents. This is because they did not hit their son by reacting to the bad behaviour of the moment. If their son displayed even a little resemblance of their good points, parents valuing this more, would embrace such good qualities more than any bad points. Based on the good qualities, they would try to understand and recognize their son. This is the heart of parents.
Whenever God visited humanity who have committed countless sins and transgressions up until today, He emphasized and valued any quality that resembled Him – even a quality only a little greater than the numerous evil qualities of men – so that He could visit His children, beseechingly and desperately, based on this quality and on the original standard. This is the heart of parents.
Today, you stand in the position that you should move forward to reach the heart of parents with missions for your race and nation as well as for the world. When you look at your race, your race stands in the orphan’s position, where he is screaming and crying looking for his lost parents. When you look at one nation, you find it a nation who has lost its parents. When you look at the world, you must have a heart to recognize it as a world that has lost its parents. With is heart, you must prepare yourself to move forward to a new base, by reconnecting with Heaven. Jesus came to earth in order to do just this.
