Pascal: beginning with God

Wednesday, March 6, 2019
    Ash Wednesday
    “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
    —Revelation 1:8 (NIV)
    It is impossible that God should ever be the end, if He is not the beginning. We lift our eyes on high, but lean upon the sand; and the earth will dissolve, and we shall fall while looking at the heavens.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées (Thoughts) [1660], P.F. Collier & Son, 1910, #488, p. 163-164 (see the book)
    See also Rev. 1:8; Gen. 1:1; Ps. 46:6,10; Isa. 43:10; 44:6; 48:12; John 1:1; Rev. 1:17; 21:6; 22:13
Quiet time reflection:
    All things begin and end in You, Lord.
