How do you think about God? Is He a loving Father, ever desiring to know and love you, and just waiting for you to run back into His arms? Or a tyrant, who has imposed rules for living and is just waiting for you to slip up? Unfortunately, a lot of us live our lives as if we believe the second option, even if we know that the first option is true.
