“We must love God for who He is, not who we want Him to be. If you knew that I hated chinese food, yet regularly invited me to join you at PF Chang’s, you are refusing to accept me for who I am. And I likely won’t respond to you for very long.  Our God loves humility and hates pride. To persist in pride as a worshiper of God is to refuse to accept God for who He is. Like the Pharisees, we are creating a god in our own image—a god who doesn’t mind our entitled, self-righteous, demanding attitude—a god who is only about our needs, desires, and wants. This is idolatry and for this we should repent.”
