Dee has a lot to ask forgiveness for from Mama and Maggie. She has used them in the past and treated them like children. Dee would read stories to them that she learned at school. For example, just as Mama or Maggie began to understand her readings, Dee would stop reading. Dee preferred to keep them in ignorance. Now Dee returns home and treats them like antiquated artifacts. Dee should really ask forgiveness from her mother and sister instead of acting like a spoiled and arrogant child. I can't really comment on your scripture reference.
