Now, I understand that cultures and traditions were different back in those days, but it still seems like they would have at least considered that this was not a very good idea.

Perhaps I’m reiterating the post from last week, but how often do we try to “help God out” or “force His hand”? What do we think that will accomplish? Do we ever stop to consider that we don’t deserve any of the promises God give us? That we are unworthy of the blessings He gives? Where do we get off with this warped sense of entitlement?

I see it everywhere, and in increasing frequency. So much so that it probably deserves a separate blog post(s) on the subject. Maybe sometime I will get around to that, but for now, scrap entitlement and replace it with gratitude. You’ll be glad you did.
