Giving All

Surrendering to God is a discipline that must be exercised frequently… daily… ok, hourly. And though the years of doing this have conditioned me there are still days when it feels surprisingly counter intuitive. In those moments I am tempted to think maybe I don’t need to give too much. It’s kinda like paying taxes… we all agree in the necessity of taxes, but at the same time we all want to know how little we can get away with paying. C.S. Lewis points out that our perspective of God is similar; we desire a relationship with Him but we don't want Him to demand too much of us. And yet he doesn’t demand anything more than what He gave… all.
