Lies We Believe About God (8)

Summary of Chapter 8
The 8th 'lie' Young combats is 'God wants to be a priority'. He's against the idea of thinking that God should be a mere 'priority' in our lives. The word 'priority' (he points out) is not even a biblical word or concept. God doesn't want to be the first priority among many of the different things in our lives. God wants to be central to all that we are and do.

I've preached this message before. God doesn't want to have a piece of the pie that is our life. God wants to have a relationship with us that is central to our being and doing. How the parts of our day are utilized should be fluid and based on the leading of the Spirit. God is involved in all of it, not part. There is nothing to object to in this chapter.

*The first pages of this chapter (discussion of magic) are oddly placed in my opinion. Seemingly, they would have fit much more naturally with the next chapter.
