Whitehead: apart from God

Monday, July 16, 2018
    Commemoration of Osmund, Bishop of Salisbury, 1099
    I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him. Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account.
    —Ecclesiastes 3:14-15 (NIV)
    Apart from God every activity is merely a passing whiff of insignificance.
    ... Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947), “Immortality”, in The Philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead, P. A. Schilpp, ed., Northwestern University, 1941, p. 698 (see the book)
    See also Eccl. 3:14-15; Job 14:1-2; Ps. 33:4,11; 90:5-6; 102:11; 103:15-16; Isa. 40:6-8; 46:10; Jas. 1:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have saturated life with meaning, though we cannot see it.
