If we’re giving less than everything we’ve got, we’re not being a friend to God. Jesus gave everything to God on the cross so he set the bar that Good Friday. Like good friends, God wants to hear about all of our experiences, good and bad, not so He can gossip but because He loves us that much to take an interest in our lives. He knows our actions but still wants to hear our stories from us. So much so, He sent His only son, incarnated as a human, to be our sacrificial atonement. He doesn’t want us to have to call for an appointment, He wants us to just drop in, and you can by prayer, at any time. Judging from the Psalms, David was a permanent resident of God’s house of prayer. It’s all in Psalm 86 if you need an example. He was a great king but still needed to commune with God constantly. Maybe that’s how he was a man after God’s own heart!

    This is good and straight to the point! We do need to share EVERYTHING with God! He wants to be so close to us that we can sit and never run out of things to talk about. I think about when I go somewhere with a friend, talking on the way there is one of my favorite parts. Usually I don’t want to get there too soon because we have a lot to talk and catch up on. I need to look at God this same way!

  2. Love the part about going somewhere with a friend. So completely true. If we’re going to get in a car and drive any distance that takes us as far as out of town, we usually at least think of calling someone to go with us. We want that companionship. We don’t want to be alone. Now, imagine if we invited that person to share our travels with us and we never spoke a word to them the entire time. Talk about awkward. God doesn’t want that either. He wants to go with us and he wants us to share our lives with him!
