Understanding God.

18 March 2015

There is a whole conversation held about understanding God and God’s purpose. How we change our understanding of God as we grow and develop. From a man with a beard on a throne, through to asking for specific items we know we need, to the Almighty and powerful deity who claims our very selves and forgives.

“In whatever way or state you understand Mister God, so you diminish his size. He becomes an understandable entity among other understandable entities. So Mister God keeps on shedding bits all the way through your life until the time comes when you admit freelyand honestly that you don’t understand Mister God at all. At this point you have let Mister God be his proper size – and wham! – there he is, laughing at you.”

Imagine God chuckles as we realise a ‘proper size’ unencumbered by even our imagination.
