A quote from this morning…

I’m currently reading Renovation of the Heart: Putting on the Character of Christ By Dallas Willard. Here he is quoting Tolstoy:

There is the God that people generally believe in – a God who has to serve them (sometimes in very refined ways, say by merely giving them peace of mind). This God does not exist. But the God whom people forget – the God whom we all have to serve – exists, and is the prime cause of our existence and of all that we perceive. (p44)
