For decades I’ve listened to sermons, teachings, and informal rants all telling me what God REALLY wants.
“It’s good to pray and do that other stuff”, one camp says, “but God’s heart is in missions.” Someone else cites a completely different activity as the top divine priority.
Caring for the poor, studying the Bible, teaching children, serving in the church … they’re each promoted by one group or another as the most important thing, with everything else being secondary, including what other groups promote as the most important thing.
What’s a (tired) guy to do?
Jesus said something about loving God and loving your neighbor as yourself. For the time being, I think I’ll just work on that. To those who want me to do something else … Sorry. And I love you.
