New Lutheran Quote of the Day

What is more, some people, with a great show of humility, declare that they hold God too far, too high, and too exalted to think that He would send rain to water their beans.  -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 320.

Is that like saying you have no right to bother the Lord, who counts the sparrows, with your need for a parking space?
(I'll admit it is sometimes asking to be relieved of the penalty for being slow because if I got out 20 minutes sooner the space would more likely be vacant.)
