Ten Things Not to Ask the Lord

Think before you speak or react is a very good policy, don't you think? Sometimes we might not blurt out our questions to God, but have we ever "thought" these questions to God? If one could check in with God and ask Him directly for 10 specific questions He definitely would not want to hear, do you think any of these would make the list? What questions do you think could be added to this list?

10.  Oh no, manna again?

9.  After I hit 490 times I don't have to forgive Deacon Jones any more right?

8.  Since Al Doit volunteered for missions, I don’t have to think about it anymore, right?

7. Are you sure I can’t skip church this week, after all the Giants made the playoffs?

6.  I already gave up one bad habit; do you really want me to give that one up too?

5.  What do you mean “what’s in your wallet?”

4.  Can I have some more leaks, onions, and garlic please?

3.  How can I submit to and love the pastor when he preaches such hard messages?

2.  With all the people you created why do I have to show brotherly love to him?

1.  You expect me to do what?



11. Why did You love a no good dirty rotten sinner like me so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to die for me?

12. Why do You bless me even when I don't deserve it?

13. Why did You give me such a wonderful wife?

14. Why did you create so many bugs? :-)

11. "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?"

12. "What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, 'The LORD did not appear to you'?"

13. "O Lord, please send someone else to do it."

14. "But Lord, how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family."

15. "if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us?"

16. "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent."

#3 & #9.... Ouch!

#11. I'm cool with you being my "Savior," but can I wait a while on the whole "Lord" thing?

11. Can I have it like Burger way?
12. Do you REALLY mean what you say all the time?
13. Can I sin just this once?
14. Can we postpone our appointment to meet....I have something really important to do.
