Flirting with God
“Flirtation is attention without intention.” Max O'Rell
I realized that I sometimes dance around relational commitment with God as if it was a trap set for me. Not trusting Him for fear of falling through some hidden opening leading to my rejection. It’s the selfish need is to stay just close enough to be “safe” but not diving in without reservation. It is like the quote above, “Flirtation is attention without intention.” That is, to talk or act devotedly, but without seriously backing up those words or actions with commitment.
