My on my how we love to bargain. Even with God. “If you do X  … then I will do Y  …” we say to God. That isn’t how God wants to work with us. Ask God for help

Jesus says to stop that kind of behavior. We should be direct. He knows what we need. We should just ask for it.

God’s goal for us is for us to be direct with God. He is direct with us. No cat and mouse kind of games at all. God doesn’t bargain. His love for us is unconditional. He is in a good mood and wants to help.

That is what pleases Him. Directness and not a game.

“Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 7:7)
