God Ain’t Your Grandma (Making God an Idol)

What does God want from us? What does God deserve from us given that he’s our creator?

Today, Fr. Mike shows how we can actually turn God into an idol—when we “choose our version of God.” This is what happens when we pull God off the shelf when we want him or need him, but put him back on the shelf when we don’t. Today, Fr. Mike invites us to ask God what he wants from us.
