Ms. Truly, I'm not a religious person, and aoiffe379, I apologize for going off topic here, but I think that if there is a God, he gives no one a thing OTHER than the wisdom and the faith in themselves that whatever they need in their lives is attainable or acheivable through their own expended effort.
There's a poem somewhere, and I forget the title, but its holds many a poignant statement even for a non-religious guy like myself. It basically said things like;
God gave us two outcomes. Success in life depends on the one we use. God helps those who help themselves.
I work hard, I always seek out new knowledge to better my understanding of things around me (I do not have a college degree), I invest my money and I live below my means, and I take risks. I'm not rich, but I'm also not poor. So long as I do all of the above I can never be poor. I don't sit around waiting for money or success to fall into my lap. I get up off my duff and go after it.
God gave me two arms, two legs, and a brain and that's all I need. If God gave everyone everything they needed, nothing would get done and people would have no purpose for being.
You're then suggesting that God is here to serve us? Somehow that doesn't seem quite the same message I've heard from the Christian community.
