God Won't Ruin Our Lives

So many fear that if they give their lives to God, He will take all the joy out of their lives and make them miserable. Yet, imagine a son coming to his kind earthly father and saying, ?Father, I have not always been obedient in the past. But now I pledge myself to follow you fully.? Can you imagine the father responding, ?Ah ha! Bread and water for rations. Constant restriction from your friends. I?ll make you regret that you ever made that pledge!? How absurd! But if we would not expect this of our imperfect earthly fathers, how much less should we worry about our perfect heavenly father ruining our lives? ?
