The Christian Mafia

Standard

Thank God I’m part of the family! This came to me before I’d even stepped out of bed. There’s a game called Mafia Wars. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, well, first, you may live in a cave, and second, it’s on the computer. In the game, you not only strive to work your way up thru the ranks, but your ultimate goal is to impress the Godfather. Given, these are not the most Christ-like ways to achieve the Father’s blessings, but in its defense, it’s not gory and graphic. For the most part. I may be rationalizing.

It came to me that as we grow as Christians, we soon begin to strive to not only achieve more for the family, but also to further impress our Father. He is the one who created us, but like children, He delights in us coming to Him with knowledge He already possesses. We move up the ranks from “baby Christian” to “mature Christian” with all sorts of levels in between! Our Father the Godfather…Our Father the Ultimate Godfather…Our God, Our Father, the Godfather. That might be tomorrow’s topic!

About chronicchristian

I am a mother of 2, married to the best man in the world for 10 years and chasing after what God wants for my life. I currently deal with some symptoms some like to refer to as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I refer to them as past symptoms as I believe God is doing something awesome and she who guards her lips guards her life. This blog is good therapy. Maybe not for you, but definitely for me. God is good and I intend to prove it.
