What do we need? How badly do we need? How do we get what we need?
These are questions we all ask ourselves, all of them based on the assumption that “we need.”
It seems the younger generation doesn’t understand this. A grandfather tells his grandson to get up for prayers, “you need to get up!” But the same thing keeps happening: the grandson simply says “no i don’t!”
The grandson is correct.
What young people understand is that we don’t “need” anything. How could we? We didn’t even need to be born! We are born against our will, and now we “need” to do things?? God puts us on earth without our consent, and now we “need” to follow his laws? Why? We didn’t ask to be born.
We didn’t ask to be born, but God needs us on this earth. He is the one who “needs,” not us.
