Here’s another Allender and Longman gem (Intimate Allies, for those who have not been following me lately 🙂 ):
God does not exclusively fill the human heart. He made humankind to need more than himself. The staggering humility of God to make something that was not to be fully satisfied with the Creator and the creation is incomprehensible.
Doesn’t that blow your mind? What a thought – from Genesis 2:18, 21-22 – that tells us how we were created for community not only with the triune God but also in relationship with other human beings!
Have you been investing in those human expressions of community around you? How could you root yourself in these more intentionally?
