I think too often we view God from the lense of our own life. We think He must not answer prayer since He did not answer mine. We think God must not care about me since my desparate situation has not changed. Too often we teach people this in the church. We orient them wrong. We say "Why pay your tithe? because God will bless you. Why get saved? so you can go to Heaven." and on and on. The kingdom of God is centered around Jesus not around us. He is worthy of all our money. He is worthy of our time, and our whole life.
When we align our life fully and sacrificially with Jesus Christ, we will know God on His terms and we will feel wonderfully blessed and priviledged that He has grated us a place in His Kingdom.
