"Something Sacred is at stake in every event."

"Awe is a way of being in rapport with the mystery of all reality. The awe that we sense or ought to sense when standing in the presence of a human being is a moment of intuition for the likeness of God which is concealed in his or her essence. Not only persons; even inanimate things stand in a relation to the Creator. The secret of every being is the divine care and concern that are invested in it. Something sacred is at stake in every event."
--Abraham Joshua Heschel

  1. So true we should see awe in people in their reflection of the Lord. So easy just to miss this but when we take the time to admire God in people we get great rewards
