“Just Give Me What I Need To Enjoy This Life”

February 8, 2012

“Have you ever realized that living for the Better Life is an insult to God?  It’s the same insult paid by the prodigal son to his father: ‘Your only value is what you can do for me.  I don’t have any interest in knowing you.  Just give me what I need to enjoy this life.’ That’s too close to how we think.”

Larry Crabb, The Pressure’s Off, Page 149

Questions for Reflection:
What is the “Better Life” you attempt to live for?  How has this been destructive for you?
How has God shown you that knowing Him is far more rewarding?
