FYI: Posts will be sparse around here until I replace my laptop.... Coming back to work after Christmas break apparently was too hard and it quit on me!

Seeing the Source

"Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father." John 14:9

Should a man see only popularity, he becomes a mirror, reflecting whatever needs to be reflected to gain acceptance. Though in vogue, he is vague. Though in style, he is stodgy....

Should a man see only power, he becomes a wolf--prowling, hunting, and stalking the elusive game. Recognition is his prey and people his prizes. His quest is endless....

Should a man see only pleasure, he becomes a carnival thrill-seeker, alive only in bright lights, wild rides, and titillating entertainment. With lustful fever he races from ride to ride, satisfying his insatiable passion for sensations only long enough to look for another....

Seekers of popularity, power, and pleasure. the end result is the same: painful unfulfillment.

Only in seeking his Maker does a man truly become man. For in seeking his Creator, man catches a glimpse of who he was intended to be.

God came near.

--Max Lucado in Grace for the Moment II
