Quote of the Day

In our therapeutically oriented Western culture, where Christian perspectives are largely lost, we settle for comparing ourselves with each, inevitably from the  outside only and in merely behavioral terms.  We think of ourselves as basically good and certainly better than some people we know, and we really have no idea how we appear to a holy God who searches hearts and knows us literally inside out.  As scanners in hospitals  put our physical insides on display for physicians to see, so the eyes of the Creator scan our hearts and show up the thoughts, motives, dreams, drives, cravings, fantasies, hates, hostilities, and meannesses that actually make us tick, including those of which we are not aware at all till someone brings them to our notice.”  —J.I. Packer
