God's Handiwork

God Speaks

The God who hears is also one who speaks.
He has spoken and is still speaking.
Humanity remains His project, not its own, and His initiatives are always at work among us.
He certainly "gives us space," as we say, and this is essential.
But He continues to speak in ways that serious inquirers can hear if they will.

It is acknowledgement of the Almighty that gives civility and refinement to our actions.
It is accountability to Him that brings discipline into our lives.
It is gratitude for His gracious favors that takes from us the arrogance to which we are so prone.
