As we were driving home from church yesterday I was in my sweet after-church haze. Everything seems right with my life after fellowshiping with fellow believers and being uplifted and exhorted in the Lord. We were stopped by the drawbridge as a tall sailboat passed through. I happened to look over at a Scion xB that sported a bumper sticker that said, "I hate God." What????!! There went my little happy bubble. Don't those people know what a horrid thing that is to say? I was immediately shocked and disturbed and frightened for these people who felt the need to let everyone know that they hated God, the One who so lovingly created them! It seemed worse to me to proclaim that than to profess to be an atheist. Hating God means that you know that God exists. But, to claim that you don't believe in God or His existence will be proved to be wrong in the end. I mean, I know that there is disdain and hate for our Lord but to so blatantly profess this was so shocking to me.
I thank God for his grace! Without that I don't like to think where we would be. It really made me want to start trying to show God's grace when I'm out and about shopping or hanging at the beach to those that I come into contact with.
