That's a great analogy! Thanks for sharing!TFK_disciple_fan wrote:I think we all at some point find ourselves guilty of giving God the "spare change" in our lives. I remember going through "Drawing Near" by John Bevere with my youth group several years back and he made an analogy to this that has stuck with me ever since. Basically, what he said was suppose you told your spouse that the only time that you and he/she could talk was during a certain time. Your spouse would try to get through to you but you kept ignoring them saying "oh not yet, it's not your time". Then when you got to your allotted time, you talked the whole time and didn't let them get out a word. Then it gets time for bed and you want to...well you get the gist. Basically you would probably end up sleeping on the couch for behaving like that. But we Christians act the exact same way. Are we not called God's bride somewhere in the Bible??? Yet we box God into a certain time in our lives each day without letting him speak to us and then we go to church and sing "I love you Lord" and expect God to move. I don't know about you, but I'd like to let God into my whole life and not just a specific part of it.

This is probably a good time for me to re-read this book, I've gotten way withdrawn and need to snap out of it.
