Things I need to remind myself of daily — Post 1

Mark Batterson, Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity,  p. 153-154

On a bad day, we tend to reduce God to the size of our greatest failure, biggest problem or worst fear.  On a good day, we tend to reduce God to the size of our greatest gift, highest hope or best attribute.  But either way, we are creating God in our image.  And what we end up with is a supersized version of ourselves.  A god who is just a little bigger, a little wiser and a little stronger than we are.  But in reality, God is infinitely better than your best thought on your best day.  In fact your best thought on your best day is at least 15.3 billion light years short of how good and great God really is. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
