What Concerns God Most

God is more concerned with our knowing Him than He is in our half-hearted pleasures of comfort, ambition, and success.  So much so that He often allows pain and suffering into ourlives to clear the clutter of mute, dead, and unworthy idols that can never deliver on their promises, even when they’re ostensibly good things like health, family, career, success and status.

– Tchividjian, Tullian; Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free; David C Cook Publishers, Copyright 2013, Kindle Edition, page 148
