CQOD: 11/29/06 -- Pascal: made for God or not?

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 29, 2006
    Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
    -- Genesis 1:26-27 (ESV)

    If man is not made for God, why is he not happy except in God? If man is made for God, why is he so opposed to God?
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées [1660]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your likeness is both burden and blessing.
