Kim: Robbie, do you want cake?
Kim: You have to eat one more bite of chicken.
Me: Just one bite of chicken, and then you can have cake.
W: Don't you want some cake?
(Robbie climbs down and plays for five or seven minutes while the rest of us eat)
K: All right, time for dessert.
R: Robbie want dessert!
K: Oh, you want some cake?
K: Eat that chicken on your fork.
W: Can you eat that one chicken so you can have cake?
(Robbie takes the chicken off the fork and eats it)
W: Is it good?
W: Do you want some more?
W: Okay, here's some cake.
This, folks, is a perfect picture of every Christian's relationship with God at some point or other. (Us = Robbie, God = Kim and I in the illustration)
