I was on a rant and roll the other night and I was telling the kids what a waste of time it is to run from God and this is what poured out of the ole pie hole.

You can run from God but he'll catch you. He runs faster.

one of my students has been quoting it ever since.

Much more eloquently Rob Bell states mostly the same idea in nooma 010. His son had done something wrong and then was caught in a lie. Rather than face up to his sins he ran upstairs and hid under the covers of his parents bed. He was there for hours when Rob went up to talk with him. He found his son in a sweaty head under the covers. He was soaked in sweat and his hair matted to his head. Rob pulled the covers back and said "There is nothing you can do to ever make me love you less" Slowly and surely his son sat up and gave his father a huge wet sweaty hug. Lots of times we hide under the covers even though it's neither comfortable nor accomplishing much.

There is nothing we can do to make our heavenly Father love us less.
