Thought for Sunday

Dog getting so old, instead of jumping up on the couch and snuggling under my arm, he sits on the floor, staring up at me. Lays his ears back, starts barking. What's that all about? Ask him what he wants, he barks more.

I sometimes wonder if barking is what God hears when we address Him. Not that He cannot understand us, but that we don't know how to address Him.

The directions are in the Book. Fortunately, unlike the dog, we can read the directions.

Maybe She is just tired of all the begging and wants people to solve their own problems with the gifts they were given. (I'm not being facetious here. Totally serious.)

Grace, I believe God does expect us to use our talents and abilities to solve our problems and to help others. I believe that God is the source of our abilities and strength. God is not Santa Claus, and we are way off base if we petition for nothing but our selfish "wants." As I say, the directions are in the Book. Blessings.
