Staring Into the Mirror
Category : Blogs (Faith), Life-Ecstatic (Faith)
Wow, what a hectic week. I’ve had no time to blog.
Thought I would quickly post this quote from John Piper that I read last night and really enjoyed.
We are all starved for the glory of God, not self. No one goes to the Grand Canyon to increase self-esteem. Why do we go? Because there is greater healing for the soul in beholding splendour than there is in beholding self. Indeed, what could be more ludicrous in a vast and glorious universe like this than a human being, on the speck called earth, standing in front of a mirror trying to find significance in his own self-image? It is a great sadness that this is the gospel of the modern world.
