Does God need us?
It has stuck me lately that there are many people who just couldn't be bothered with God. Whilst, I want to respect people's opinions, I struggle to see how life can be viewed, without including a Godly perspective.
The tragedy is that the people who decide to exclude God from their lives, still crave something that is beyond themselves - this shows in the plethora of places they look for 'meaning' and 'happiness.'
Abraham Heschel - "God is not alone when discarded by man. But man is alone."
And yet, the Psalmist writes...
Psalm 8:4 - "What is man that you are mindful of him,the son of man that you care for him?"
God doesn't need us, but God desires to be with us - that is Grace!
Awestruck by Grace,
