我們眼拙,看不見祂真正的榮耀,只能認真禱告用心生活,感受祂的愛,同時從祂偉大奧妙的作為(“功能”僅為其一部分,連為我們寫聖經也算啊)和被祂造的物(宇宙天地和一切自然界裡原理,細至人類心理,廣至天體物理等)來體會祂的一點點好。就算只能看到祂的”功能“(也看你如何定義,例如說幫助我這項功能的話,也包括愛我)也已經是極為美妙了,何來哀戚?   「基督徒」记得: 祂(耶和華)不喜悅馬的力大、 不喜愛人的腿快。  耶和華喜愛敬畏和盼望祂慈愛的人。 -- 詩篇147:7  不是因爲祂多麽需要我們的崇拜與愛,而是只有從愛祂仰望他我們才真正能活出最美好最幸福最有價值最被愛充滿的那個自己。因爲祂才是原始設計者,— 祂知道我們存在的意義和價值爲何,祂有我們一切所需的鑰匙和資源和愛。我們不是憑空需要愛的,我們是intentionally被造成需要愛的,祂能給我們真正的養分,nurture us into our best and most beautiful with His Truth, His true love.
