Not $3 Worth, But All of God: (Choose Life - Part 49 - 1/3)
How so well did Wilbur Rees write of such? All they want is "Three Dollars Worth of God." Their heart's cry is for just a limited amount, dose of God, a God they can use, a God they can control, a God after their own image. So, they cry,

"I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please.

Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep,
but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk
or a snooze in the sunshine.
I don’t want enough of God to make me love a black man or pick beets with a migrant.
I want ecstasy, not transformation.
I want warmth of the womb, not a new birth.
I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack.
I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please."

— Wilbur Rees.
