Just finished reading Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman, so I want to share a few nuggets with you. Ironically, the first thing I’m going to share isn’t actually a quote by Kyle Idleman but by Larry Osborne. And it has to do with the way that we see God’s role in our lives. Many of us see him as a consultant and someone we go to as a “helper” in our lives as opposed to as the Lord of all in our lives. Now, God is many things. But consultant is not one of them. Listen up:

Now, a consultant is someone whose wisdom we highly value and listen to, but at the end of the day, we make the final decision. That’s why they’re called consultants. Here’s the problem: God doesn’t do consulting. Never has. Never will. He does God. When we treat him as consultant, he simply stops showing up for the meetings.

Well, ok, then Larry.

Feast on that folks. Happy Friday!
