God’s perspective verses man’s

I never give God thanks for loving me, because he cannot help it;
whether he would or not it is his nature to.

Mester Eckhart

(a stormy surf / Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2017)

An aged man, whom Abraham hospitably invited to his tent,
refused to join him in prayers to the one spiritual God.
Learning that he was a fire-worshiper,
Abraham drove him from his door.
That night God appeared to Abraham in a vision and said:
“I have borne with that ignorant man for seventy years;
could you not have patiently suffered him one night?

The Talmud

    Abraham was a people too.

    How incredibly profound! God’s perspective is not our perspective. There is always something more to be considered. Thanks for sharing this from The Talmud Julie.

    • I was really struck by the little tale as you’re right Lynda, His perspective is not mine and it would behoove me to think more about His rather than mine .. as mine is certainly limited

  3. Love this!!! 🙂 ❤
