Just me trying to be honest with God.

“Some people talk as if meeting the gaze of absolute goodness would be fun. They need to think again….Goodness is either the great safety or the great danger - according to the way you react to it.” C. S. Lewis

I think we sometimes are bothered by the ways God has chosen to communicate with us. We might prefer if He were more direct. If He wants something from us, why doesn’t He just come out and make it plain? But when we consider our poor record keeping the simplest commands we may come to appreciate His wisdom. Consider what it would mean to be in the presence of a being wholly committed to what is good when we are not behaving so. Of course this is the whole point of sending Jesus.
