How do we know about God’s love, God’s generosity, God’s kindness, God’s forgiveness? Through our parents, our friends, our teachers, our pastors, our spouses, our children … they all reveal God to us. But as we come to know them, we realise that each of them can reveal only a little bit of God. God’s love is greater than theirs; God’s goodness is greater than theirs; God’s beauty is greater than theirs.
At first we may be disappointed in these people in our lives. For a while we thought that they would be able to give us all the love, goodness, and beauty we needed. But gradually we discover that they were all signposts on the way to God.
Prin cei care ni le arata… Numai ca fiecare dintre acesti apropiati ai nostri nu arata decât o particica din iubirea, din frumusetea lui Dumnezeu, infinit mai mari.
Daca cei dragi ne-au dezamagit, este pentru ca am asteptat de la ei ceea ce numai Dumnezeu poate oferi.
Ei sunt simple „tablite indicatoare” pe drumul catre Dumnezeu.
