I think I know how God feels

That's quite an arrogant assumption, but I'll tell you why.

I decided it would be nice to treat the seven year-old to an icecream. We went to the shop, she chose a delicious banana paddle pop and then turned to me and said,

"You're the best and nicest mummy in the whole world because you buy me icecreams."

Yeah right.

If she'd stopped to think, she might have realised that the reason I bought her the icecream was because I am the best and nicest. I am not the best and nicest because I buy her icecream.

It's easy to confuse character with gifts. To appreciate the gift more than the giver. But gifts always come about because of the character of the giver.

God must get annoyed!
