You’re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn’t care? The proverb has it that “he’s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you’ll find. It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.” (Jas 4:4).
Pride spits at the throne of Grace whenever we push Papà away, insisting on ‘our’ own way. But think … vengeance – or Grace? Hatred – or Grace? Illicit sex – or Grace? Booze – or Grace? Drugs – or Grace? ‘Your’ time – or Grace? Etc? X
