“Hi, this is God:
I have given you life, now
Go live it, risk it, invest it all to reap the abundance
I have made available to you.
My hand will be there to guide you and keep you safe
BUT I TRUST YOU, my child, to do it.
Here, I’m giving you the keys.
Now go live it and be wonderful and
Feel wonderful and do wonderful and
Come to the end of your time on earth knowing
You had fun.”
Does that sound to you like a message from God?
Or is this more like it:
“I am the Lord Your God:
Read your Bible
Say your prayers
Go to church
Give your tithe
Clean up your room
Pick up your socks
Obey all the rules and
Whatever you do, DON’T SCREW UP.
In this you will find joy
Just don’t ever let Me catch you having
Too much fun…”
I like the first message better, don’t you?
Want to know a secret?
I think God likes the first one better, too.
