Thought for today – 10/25/2011

THE GOD WE SEEK
“The God we seek is the God we want, not the God who is. We fashion a god who blesses without obligation, who lets us feel his presence without living his life, who stands with us and never against us, who gives us what we want when we want it. We worship a god of consumer satisfaction. . . . Without encountering God in worship, we easily forget doing justice or loving-kindness, or if we remember, they become mere tasks rather than the substance of life.”
– Mark Labberton in The Dangerous Act of Worship (IVP, 2007)
