Why is it that Christian books always seem ever so slightly (and sometimes a great deal!) irritating – most of them seem to be written by people who either have perfect lives or want to have them. When I read Christian books, I seem to spend most of my reading time either snorting with disbelief or annoyance. Sorry, but it’s just the way it is.
So, this may be an odd sort of a prayer (though, actually, all my prayers are odd) but please save us from Christian writers who simply don’t know how to be human. And thank You that I follow a God Who is utterly uninterested in making us all into perfect Christians and instead deeply dedicated to the sheer humanity of our lives. Thank You.
