Loving God Like He Is

"Now we see a blurred image in a mirror"
- 1st Corinthians 13:12a (Gods Word Translation)
Steve Meeks, Pastor of Calvary Community Church in Northwest Houston, told a story I shall never forget.

He was complaining to God about how murky things were. God seems to love riddles and speaks in parables, why doesn't he just make things more clear and make His ways more obvious?! That's when God asked Pastor Steve a question:

"Steve, why can't you just love me like I am?

We want God to accept us like we are, why can't we extend the same courtesy to Him and stop trying to make Him conform1 to our expectations?
