PRINCETON, NJ – Shocking reports have recently popped up across Central Jersey of inanimate objects protesting against their usage. Officials initially ignored stories of household items having a voice, but the rising recurrence of similar stories has become impossible to ignore.
The first account came several weeks ago, when a domino suddenly spoke to 24-year-old toy store employee Andrew O’Brien. He had been demonstrating a new domino display to a pair of Christmas customers.
“We had this whole setup where the dominoes fall on each other starting from the counter, then weaving [sic] across the entire store, and then they trigger all these Christmas effects like, ringing bells and turning lights and ending at this Santa doll that says ‘Ho ho ho,’” O’Brien said. “So I freaked out when the fifth domino in the lineup started talking. I was like, What? But I’m not crazy. It wouldn’t move. It talked.”
According to O’Brien, the domino refused to take part in the display. “Do you know who I am?” the plastic tile said. “I’m not some kind of pushover, okay? I’m not going to just fall because you told me to. Don’t tell me what to do.”
The idea of trusting a God who saved one by grace becomes terrifying when one questions the basis for His grace. I didn’t do anything to deserve it. So who’s to say He won’t change His mind tomorrow? How can I throw my entire life and self on a Father who may or may not always want me in the family? If this sacrifice was such a gift, how do I know He won’t take it back?
If I trust Him wholeheartedly, how do I know He won’t let me fall?
