I had the opportunity to hear Brennan Manning share this story eight years ago when I was in college. It struck me then, and it does now.
Brennan’s voice and understanding of God has been and continues to be instrumental in so many people’s understanding of God. And although this is a reading of a simple children’s story, it is incredibly powerful for me. For so many years, this is how I’ve viewed God. I only come to Him when I want something; and no matter what He gives, it’s never enough.
