    Our mind is very tricky. It has a way of rationalizing. That is why everybody thinks they are right. And because of the human minds tricks, you are stuck here in the material world. You give the mind something spiritual, and it makes it material. The mind is material, so it naturally runs for material. Give mind God, and he uses God for his dog. You are trying to use God for small things. Don’t use God to make your dog better. God also knows your dog is sick, so why pray to God about your dog?
