I spent a great weekend with my Aunt and Uncle who live in Maryville TN. We talked, reminisced, laughed and ate. At church this morning the sermon was on the temptations of Jesus. What has me thinking this afternoon is the concept that Jesus’ temptations and often what the tempter entices us with is the word If.
If God loves us, then why did our loved one die young.
If God cares about us then why______________
If God loved us then what we want would happen.
If I was meant to do ________, then things would fall into place the way I want.
When those ifs aren’t fulfilled we question God, who God is and if God really exists.
What ifs tempt me? I’m still reflecting.
What about you?
