Religion is About You

13 Sep

All religions focus on you – what you shouldn’t do, what you should do and how often you should do something. Religion is all about you, you doing or not doing something in order to earn God’s favor and get Him on your side. Christianity becomes a religion for Christians who believe that if they spend a lot of time reading the Bible, praying, fasting or volunteering their time in church, they will gain increased favor with God…
When you do these things, do them from a heart that wants to, and not from a heart that has to because of religious obligations.
