My wife was talking with a very good friend of ours last night and she recounted the following true story:
Her husband was talking to God one day, in one of those busy conversations we all have. He was lamenting over the distance he felt from God recently. By his own admission, he likes to watch a lot of television. (I’m an addict myself, that’s why we don’t own one.) He asked God to show him what he should do.
The very next moment, his television begins to spark and dies.
