So important?

As we were driving home the other night, my two eldest got into an argument. Again. This time is was over (I kid you not) who had the most invisible trophies. I pointed out that this was a ridiculous argument, as 1)the trophies are non-existent, 2) it is unimportant, and 3) it was giving me a headache. My son sputtered for a moment and said, "But Mom, it is SO important!" They refused to drop it, so we had to play the quiet game the rest of the way home.

I wonder if this is how God feels. We (His kids) spend half our time in church arguing over minute differences in theology. In our minds we elevate personal preferences to matters with serious theological and eternal ramifications. We spend so much time bickering over unimportant things that we miss out on the chance to truly fellowship with Him.

I wonder what God takes for the headaches we give Him. I took two Advil.
