God Gets What, Exactly?

God gets to give us our gifts in life? Or could our own growth help to give something back to God?

God gets what? To give us our gifts in life? Or could our own spiritual awakening give something back to God? Maybe both.

God gets what, exactly, from this nutty Earth School?  Have you ever wondered?

What a beautiful yet baffling world! A world in which Oxford Dictionaries selected “post-truth” as the new word for 2016. Lately, certain voters not thrilled with Trump or Brexit… might wish for an ice cream scoop or something to pry us out of bed in the morning.

Were you shocked to learn how popular it is now, wishing that God would install a control chip in your brain?

Guidance Beggar  — a controversial term that we’ll discuss in today’s article. This is Part Two, concluding a short series on the theme, “God is my GPS.” Part One was: God GPS? Surrender To That?

Of course, you’re going to do what you want to do!

The God GPS. No, you won’t find it in stores this holiday season. But do you wish you could? Let’s explore the popularity of slogans like “God is my GPS.”

Is God Your GPS?

Is God YOUR GPS? Do you really, really want that?

Is God YOUR GPS? Do you really, really want that?

Such a bumper sticker! “God Is My GPS.”

How appealing is that idea? I fell for it. And fell hard.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a relationship with God where, ah! Awe!  Mystical guidance would drive me at every turn.

I just adored the thought of that. For about two seconds. Next I came to. With a start.

A start of today’s article, actually. 😉
