"Every relationship we have that has any kind of intimacy or trust also has boundaries. Whether it's within a marriage or a friendship, there is an agreement at some point, whether implicitly or explicitly, that there will be boundaries...because that's what makes a relationship meaningful. So, the idea that I want to have a relationship with God, but have no boundaries, is ridiculous."
~ Skye Jethani
"How do we relate to God? Do we seek Him mainly in times of trouble, searching for answers in our distress...but ignoring Him during our seasons of celebration? Are we like the Israelites of old? Easily swayed by the idols of our age, including such things as busyness, success, and influence?"
