Once again I understand that some of you might not want to read about religious things, well this post isn’t intended for you. But feel free to come back for the next post, that most likely will go back to making fun of things (Maybe Twilight… Spoiler: It probably won’t be Twilight)
But yeah so sometimes I do spend thinking about religious things. I actually got a lot of response for my last religious post, so I figured I’d do another one. However, before I actually get into the religious aspect of the post, I’m going to talk about how pathetic I am, and then hopefully I can relate the two together.
So when I was in high school, I was basically dating this girl, and we’d talk on the phone every day like most high school couples. Well at some point during every conversation she’d get mad at me for not talking enough. Firstly she should have known that I was a high school boy, and NOTHING was going on in my daily life. Secondly, which I tried to explain, that I’d much rather listen to her telling me all the trivial acts of her day, because I wanted to know everything about her.
Cute? Maybe. Pathetic? Probably. However I feel like this can be related to God. Not that in 4 years God will be married and have two kids, even though that happened with the girl. It’s more during prayer, which is like a phone call, why do we typically do all the talking? God already knows everything about us, why don’t we do more listening so we can try to know more about God, who we don’t know much about.
I think it works, but I’m going to use another pathetic example from my life to add to the point. So when I first thought about writing about this, I had a crush on this girl. And when I say crush I really mean I was overly obsessed with her. It was really bad. At one point whenever I got online the first place I went was her facebook page and her blog. I’d then spend however long I was online refreshing both pretty often. She didn’t actually blog that often, but I’d refresh in hopes of reading more of her thoughts. I wanted to read everything she wrote, because again I wanted to know her better.
Cute? Probably Not. Pathetic? Definitely. I still think it relates to God. We have his words written, and while we can’t hit refresh to gain new words, we can read them over and over again. Yet we still don’t spend that much time reading his words in order to know him.
Now I’d like to point out that I’m not trying attack anyone here, and in fact I’m mainly speaking to myself, because I fall into both categories. Oh well hopefully you enjoyed this.
