Today I'd like all of you with dogs to take a few minutes and teach them algebra. A ridiculous request, isn't it?
But it's less ridiculous than you and I thinking we can fully understand the infinite goodness and love of God.
I've been meditating on Psalm 71 this week, and verse 15 says: "My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure" (NIV).
It reminds me of another passage--Ephesians 3:19 where Paul prays that the Ephesians will come to know God's love but admits God's love "can never be fully known." (GNT).
I doubt that a dog can learn higher math, but I'm completely sure we will never fully understand God's wonderful love. It's that big.
We use the word "awesome" too easily, but in this case, it fits.
