He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God only. From The Weight of Glory
Phew, that was a long one. In fact, though it’s short on words, it is long on content. This brief sentence summarizes one of the Bible’s major themes, as well as that of many psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. If that last bit sounds familiar, check out Colossians 3:16.
I was pursuing other topics and just now returned to my as yet unpublished post, hoping I could intelligently expand on it. Funny thing, though, Uncle Jack’s simple statement pretty much says it all.
By the way, I realize that simple statement does not, in fact, say everything about God. All the words of all the world’s tongues could not even begin to encapsulate God’s true nature. And therein lies the great problem with the world’s religions; because of the human pride that institutionalized them, they all say they have all there is to say about all things related to God. And frankly, that’s just a lot of hooey.
