For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Do You Love Your School Principal?
For the first twenty years of my Christian journey, loving God was about as foreign to me as loving the school principal would have been when I was a student. The principal was in charge, so I respected and obeyed him. I submitted to his authority, but I certainly didn’t feel close to him.

The chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying him forever. Love of God is not embraced until his goodness is tasted.
