My thoughts,delights, and reflections

simple logic.

simple logic.

The millionaire confesses: “I would trade it all away for my sanity.” Indeed, there is no benefit to a man who gains the whole world but loses his soul in the process. 

The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.   

Godliness with contentment is great gain. We brought nothing into this world and it is certain that we can carry nothing out.

Beautiful Eulogy — “Entitlement”

The Nature of Beauty
God is beautiful. This fact is plainly  taught in the Scriptures. But we shouldn’t think He is beautiful in the  same exact way a painting, a flower or a melody is beautiful. This would  belittle Him. God does not conform to some standard of beauty outside  of Himself. In His very nature, God is the superlative of everything  good. He is the standard by which all other beauty is to be measured and  understood. God’s beauty is prototypical, inherent and intrinsic. All  other beauty is derived, contingent and dependent. All other beauties  are streams that spring forth from God, the eternal ocean of beauty. His  dwelling place is called the perfection of beauty (Psalm 50:2). The hope of the believer is to forever gaze upon His beauty (Psalm 27:4, Isaiah 33:17).  The reality of the beauty of God is truly astounding, especially when  considered in conjunction with another fact that is also plainly taught  in the Scriptures: God is invisible. God cannot be seen. 1 Timothy 6:16 says  that “no one has seen or can see” Him. He has no physical form. He is  hidden from our eyes. And yet He is perfectly beautiful. What does that  say about the nature of beauty?(Reposted from Shai Linne’s blog @ lyricaltheology.blogspot.com)
