Do You Have God On A Performance Plan?

In Christian RealTalk by Antwuan Malone

Take a second to think about this. Would you still be a Christian if God stopped blessing you? It’s a good question, but it’s probably a little too easy to answer.

What do you do when you hear a friend’s loved one passed away? Do you call immediately, risking that you are one of dozens of people calling offering condolences (which may not be a good thing, actually)? Or do you wait a day or two to call, to let the emotional tide calm down a bit and allow those closest to respond …
