Judges: A Drifting People, A Delivering God (part ten)
People seem obsessed with their entitlements and rights. We think we deserve things because we see others with them, we work hard, or simply because we exist. But happiness and privilege are not birthrights; nor are they promised results for hard work or faithfulness. Instead, we should view creature comforts as undeserved gifts from our loving God. Meanwhile, we should concern ourselves with the entitlements and rights that belong to the King of kings and the Lord of lords. We should bend our will to meet Him on His terms instead of the other way around. Oh how God delights in a child who comes to Him on His terms. And oh how rare it is.
