Giving Him All Your Marbles

3 10 2008

In Joshua Harris’s book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, he tells the story of a little boy and a little girl who wanted to make a trade.  Her bag of candy for his bag of marbles.  The night before they make the trade, the little boy decides there are three marbles he just can’t part with, so he takes them out and puts them under his pillow.  The next day, he gives her his bag of marbles minus three.  She gives him her candy.  The girl knows nothing about the other three marbles.  The little boy has a hard time sleeping, though.  He keeps wondering if she gave him all of her candy. 

What I want to know is have we given God all of our “marbles”?  Or are we wondering if He’s given us all of his?  

Until we’ve given God everything we have, we will never be able to know God’s best.  That means letting go of the worldly attitudes.  That means letting go of the foolish ways of the world and holding on to Him.  That means getting a new, Godly attitude about things. 

In the next few weeks, I hope to go back to why I started this in the first place instead of being a book critic. =) I recommend that you get a hold of I Kissed Dating Goodbye because I plan on going through it chapter by chapter sometime soon. 

Love in Christ,
