Stage 3: Bargaining

On the heels of denial and anger comes (for me) the most useless and yet funniest of the stages: Bargaining. Just look it up in scripture... not many ever got away with bargaining with God, not even Jesus. Of course He wasn't exactly bargaining in the garden of Gethsemane... but read between the lines, you can almost hear it in his voice.

See, for me, I'd have trouble giving up the long, hot baths with smelly bubbles...

You bargain all you want. If the only thing standing in the way of you being a nun is a pretty bedspread then I'll buy you one.

Love you,

True, we never win when we try to bargain with God, but we keep trying, don't we? What does that say about us? Just how smart are we??
