Just A Thought...

What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” A. W. Tozer, Knowledge of the Holy (1961)...

I'm no Tozer, but what about this - "What comes into his mind when God thinks about us is the most important thing about God." J.D. Blase, Tears of a Clown (as of yet unpublished)

  1. And how do we know what that is, John? How do we see that through the filter of our own insecurities and guilt? Is it the grace of which you so often speak?

    Looking forward to more thought provoking snippets from the next book...

  3. this is QUITE a thought, my thinky friend...

    I'm again challenged to look beyond this way and that to find more meaning in the words I read.

  4. Is it bad that I'm hearing Smokey Robinson at this point?

    I hope the thing that comes to mind when he thinks of me is: mercy. I'd take fatherly encouragement, too.

  5. Carpool Queen,
    What would you wish, really wish, for God to think about when he thinks about you?

    You asked if it has something to do with grace? I believe it has everything to do with grace, my friend...

  8. John, you are a thinky friend (love that Tiffany)! For me, your beautiful quote answers the Tozer quote; the mind of Love thinks love toward me(thanks to Jesus). Being hidden in Christ like a Russian Matryoshkas doll has extraordinary implications. Living surrounded by His love because of it.
