No! God doesn't give us good things because WE'RE deserving, he blesses us because HE'S good. That is all. What we deserve is judgment, nothing more. Hence grace. Hate this mentality - it's "me" focused.
Courage is especially necessary in today's hyped up, narrow-minded society who takes PC stances that are deemed popular and "acceptable" and "open-minded" & yet they criticize and openly bash people who disagree with them. Stand up to the hypocrisy!
