John Piper writes, "Our happiest moments have not been self-saturated moments, but self--forgetful moments. There have been times when we stood beside the Grand Canyon, or at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, or viewed a stunning sunset over the Sahara, and for a fleeting moment felt the joy of sheer wonder. This is what we were made for. Paradise will not be a hall of mirrors. It will be a display of majesty. And it won't be ours."
"Christ is the most majestic reality in the universe...making much of us would not satisfy our souls. We were made for something greater. If we are to be as happy as we can be, we must see and savor the most glorious person of all, Jesus Christ himself." (Piper, The Passion of Jesus Christ, 2004)
These are just a few of the mirrors in our house. (It is not easy--taking pictures of mirrors with my cell phone camera!) I LOVE mirrors. But life and mirrors are not about "me"! I was made for something greater...to see and savor the most glorious person of all, Jesus Christ himself-- AND to reflect and share HIS glory with others!
