“Some people treat Jesus like a sugardaddy.” This is the phrase that my stepdad said as we got ready to leave the house, this Christmas morning. When I first heard these words, I kind of laughed, but when I actually thought about it, I realized how much sense it makes.
Many of us use the Lord’s name in vain. We call on him when we are at our lowest, or need a passing grade on a test. Why can’t we call on Him when we are at our highest? Why can’t God be apart of our everyday lives. This is something that I am guilty of myself. Even to this day I still struggle with making time for God’s word. I am trying to make a conscious effort to attempt to talk to Him everyday. It seems like nowadays, as a society we only call on God when there has been a tragedy or when we need financial help. And then if our prayers aren’t answered, we blame it on God as if He did something wrong. Sometimes I wonder if He allows certain tragedies and events to happen to try and get a message through to us.
Another thing I don’t understand is how people blame God for their current situation. People will put themselves in certain situations and then wonder why they can’t get out of them. What are you doing to change your current situation. It’s like we want to call His name for help and then sit back and do the same thing we have always done. How do you expect the Lord to help you if you are not helping yourself? The next time you think about blaming God for something ask yourself “What did I do to put myself in this situation?”
