God wants to use you!
This is the most empty and awful thing to tell someone. Think, if I told my wife, “I want to use you.” Or if I told my child, “I want to use you.” Or if I told my friend, “I want to use you.”
Using people is an absolutely awful thing. It’s horrible, wretched. When people use people it’s called slavery, oppression, prostitution.
Last time I checked, God is known as loving Father, faithful Husband, loyal Friend. He is not the Great Taskmaster, or the Supreme Dictator, or the Pompous Pimp. He is love. God is love.
Love doesn’t use people. Love cares, nurtures, builds up, edifies. Love isn’t rude or crude, self-seeking or full of fury. Love isn’t abusive, controlling, or heavy-handed. Love is patient and kind. Love protects, trusts, hopes.
Love sticks with you to the end.
Love does not fail.
God…He loves you. He doesn’t want to use you; He wants to love you!
