Because I might get bored!

“What is your motivation, Paul?

Love. Without condition, reason or rhyme. Love is my motivation.

And are you laughed at? Are you told love is not enough? Are you told we must have rules? Are you told that I demand you are “saved” … that you should “believe” in me as in the bible … that you must pray and go to church and tithe and volunteer … that if you really love me you will do all these things because that is “love in action” … that love is a verb … that love is an obligation and a way of repaying your debt … that you only “love” because you are saved … and because you are saved that I love you … ?”

“Jesus was talking to a people who wailed … “Because I might get bored!” … as he rewrote their religion.  Change was their issue.
