When I walk into the house I can ask Alexa to turn on the television. And if I say it just right, I can get her to change the channel to ESPN.  Alexa not only will turn on and off lights, but she can brighten my day with a weather update.  Alexa is full of knowledge and can handle most of my questions.  Indeed, Alexa serves me well.  Sometimes I have seen people treat God like I treat Alexa.  They call on God to do things for them, wanting him to be at their beckon call.  If they don’t get what they want, they try asking other ways.  God is not to be treated like Alexa. We are the ones that should be serving Him. 


1 Samuel 12:24 (NIV)
24  But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.
