So I did the math.....
Let's assume you live to be 85 years old. That's 2,680,560,000 seconds. God can't give me 300 of those seconds? Since God can be all places at once it should be no problem for God to take physical form and give me 5 minutes of his/her/its time out of 85 years to have an actual conversation with me. I don't want money, card, mansions or anything materialistic, I would just want to know why I'm here, what my purpose is and what can I do to make the world a better place. That's not a lot to ask for and I find it pretty pathetic that he won't give me 5 minutes out of an entire lifetime.
So my question is: Why praise someone that won't make time for you?

That math is not including leap year LOL, so add 1,814,440 seconds.“People just do the strangest things when they believe they are entitled...But they do even stranger things when they just plain believe.”

Maybe him just telling you would defeat the purpose of the lesson.

5 minutes out of an entire lifetime is not too much to ask for. Just think about it.“People just do the strangest things when they believe they are entitled...But they do even stranger things when they just plain believe.”

perhaps you should become more confident in yourself, you don't need a supreme being who may or may not exist to answer this, you are capable of learning, but don't expect the answer to be given to you.

if you accept the idea of God being the king and creator of all things (if not, that's fine, but for our purposes here, assume that is true), who are we to demand God give us time and attention beyond what he has already done by sending his son.
Do I get to demand that the president of the US give me his time? I mean if he expects my loyalty he owes me something right? If he expects me to follow his laws he owes me right? We take this attitude with no one but God. Applying it to our life on earth we see how ridiculous a demand it is and yet people still think it is a rational demand to make of God.
Your original question was why praise someone who won't make time for you. If you believe in the biblical account of Jesus, God has done more than just make time for us. He sent his son to teach us (answer questions about what to do with our lives) and die for us so that we may be with him in Heaven. That is so much more than giving each individual a few minutes of his time. I would think that is much more praise worthy than if he showed up at my house for a little Q and A.bucket:Hidden Content
