I am terrible – the absolute worst – about keeping in touch with people.
This is why I have Facebook and Twitter. I can easily see what they’re up to and not sound like a total idiot sometimes.
But sometimes I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to be telepathic over a distance. To be able to chat on and off throughout the day without having to type on a phone or computer. Or to call someone.
That’s the great thing about God. He’s always there and I can talk to him without need for a computer or a phone. Or, going old school, without writing a letter.
God is always there. It’s as simple as thinking “Hey God, what’s up?”.
Some religions believe(d) for their (G/g)od to listen to them or do something for them, they need to make sacrifices.
My favorite example: modern day prosperity gospel. They tell you to give of your money, and God will bless you abundantly! But where is that money going? Hmm…
We know better. God is here for us. He hears us because he loves us. He answers our prayers in due time because he loves us. (Remember though: sometimes that answer is no.)
Nevertheless, isn’t it great having a direct line?
