“Why do we want to get near bigness and beauty and magnificence and excellence? It’s because that’s what we were made for. We were not made for mirrors. We were made for standing in front of what is infinitely beautiful, having it to satisfy us.” John Piper quoted by Steven DeWitt, Eyes Wide Open: Enjoying God in Everything.

 

Soli Deo Gloria
