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,

Yes, Ty
It's a little disconcerting to think that God doesn't really need us (God is self-sufficient) - but it is incredible that God chooses to include us!
