While on my trip to New Orleans, which I will blog about soon, I was reading a book by Donald Miller. Donald, in his book "Searching for God Knows What" has a chapter where he talks about fearing God. He wraps it up with this summation:
"If you ask me, the way to tell if a person knows God for real is that they will fear him. They won't go around making absurd political assertions and drop God's name like an ace card. It seems like, if you really knew the God who understands the physics of our existence, you would operate a little more cautiously, a little more compassionately, and a little less like you are the center of the universe."
Amen Donald. This is my new life motto, especially after experiencing the mission trip to Houma.
