Building a relationship with God takes some people their entire lives. How do some come to understand him earlier versus those who connect to him later?
For Tyler Hargrove, growing up in the confines of his Booker T. Washington housing project in the Mott Haven community of the South Bronx, was one of the only things in life he knew. Another was living in a household where his mother expressed her love for God. As for how he carried himself through life, he always sought the quick way out. If he needed to get something done, he looked for a shortcut; a shortcut with his academics and a shortcut at home. His life of finding shortcuts led him into St. Mary’s Park where he would have a divine intervention with God.
Tyler will continue, not only on this first occasion, but on many occasions, to come to know and understand God. In addition to knowing and understanding God, he’ll have to learn there’s more to life than a shortcut. And adhering to his parents will be crucial in his success in school as well as in life. A full transformation will be of use in order for Tyler to leave behind childish ways and become more accountable for his actions.
