We Have a Larger Purpose Than Patching Up Life

January 15, 2014

“We all fear that life is intolerable and overwhelming, but we don’t want to admit it. To do so would require a terrifying dependence on God. But the fabric of life is shredded beyond repair. Legislation, therapy, social action, church programs, personal growth seminars–nothing can sew it back together.

“…We will never fully mend the rip–only God can accomplish that. But we have a larger purpose than patching up life: to know God and enjoy him forever.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Finding God, Page 55

Question for Reflection:
“How can we become more aware of what we tend to deny and thereby know God more intimately?” (Page 55)
