there’s nothing worse than the silent treatment from parental units. i rather get smacked and humiliated. but silence…it’s a powerful thing, the choice weapon of many asian parents. right away it brings me into a state of frustrated humility. the battle is over. i’ll confess wrong or agree to whatever punishment i deserve. anything…just please speak…
God’s silence is fascinating and beyond that of our earthly parents. hardened unconfessing hearts hinder communication. his silence in my life would be even more devastating to me. i hope it never happens. final word: it is much better to be exalted by God than to be humbled by him.
