Have you ever let someone borrow something? It’s usually not difficult at all for the borrower to get to you in order to make the acquisition. However when it is time to repay they want you to travel across two oceans, three states, and knit them a sweater out of rabbit fur before you walk to their house to get what they owe YOU.
I'm thinking, God may be feeling the same way as the lenders. We bargain and promise Him we'll pray more, read more, share more, and even go to church if He could only...(Fill in the blank). God answers our prayers and here we go with excuses as to why we can't follow though with our end of the bargain. The bible says it is better not to vow than to vow and not pay. (Ecclesiastes 5:5)
Let's treat God better. For one…praying, reading, sharing, and going to church is something He asks us to do consistently regardless. Not something we should use as leverage. No more bargaining, just do your part, He always does His!
