Kind of reminds me of a Christian's relationship with God. (Not the sleeping part :) God is just waiting for his children to spend time with Him. Some of us respond well to God when he blesses and shows His love for us in tangible ways. For others, it takes maybe a bite on the hand to remind us that He is still there and waiting, but no matter what He will never leave us.
.All of this is done to show His love and desire to be a part of our lives. How often do we just go on with our day and ignore Him? Or only call on Him when there is a great need? God created us to be in relationship with Him. He should be the first person we talk to in the morning, the last person at night, and all throughout the day. Do you have a personal relationship with God? Do you desire to know more about Him and communicate with Him? Tell Him! Read His Word. Sit under biblical preaching. Get to know this God who loves you so much that He is willing to do whatever it takes to get your attention!
