The consumer mentality is such a part of Americans that we can’t check it even when considering God. For many of us (yes, including some who name themselves Christians), He is like any other good or service, i.e., how’s it workin’ for me? Is it hassle free?
Man, nothing is new. I can’t help but think of this:
19…their god is their stomach,.. Their mind is on earthly things. (Philippians 3)
May I always heed the Holy Spirit with respect to my “stomach.” When I don’t do it, I hope the Lord reminds me.
I love this blog post I was reading this morning: Leave Us Alone Jesus
