The Glory of God

The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Psalm 19:1
The really wonderful moments of joy in this world are not the moments of self-satisfaction, but self-forgetfulness.  Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon and contemplating your own greatness is patholgical.  At such moments we are made for a magnificent joy that comes from outside ourselves.  And each of these rare and precious moments in life - beside the Canyon, before the Alps, under the stars - is an echo of a far greater excellence - namely, the glory of God.  (John Piper, Don't Waste Your Life)
