Hear, Hear

My favorite lines from the movie "Evan Almighty" which is on the telly this Saturday night:

A repartee between Evan Baxter and God:

Evan: Do I know you?
God: Not as much as I'd like.


This one is God talking to Evan's wife, Joan who prayed for their family to be closer:

God: Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?
