A son’s desire to take his report card to his father usually corresponds to the grades that it shows: the better the grades, the greater his desire to get home with the report card. However, a discerning son recognizes that discussing his report card with his father is a valuable exercise no matter how good or bad the grades.
Go to Jesus irrespective of the grade you think you deserve for the day. Remember what He says:
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
– Matthew 11:28-30 [quoting Jeremiah 6:16]
“…the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.”
– John 6:37
