Eyes of God

Brad M. Griffin | Mar 12, 2010

Recently I read Henri Nouwens Finding My Way Home: Pathways to Life and the Spirit, a short collection of writings and presentations published after his death. I wasnt expecting to find a definition of theology in the opening section called The Path of Power, but there was one nonetheless. According to Nouwen, theology is looking at reality with the eyes of God.

But theres more. We see reality through Gods eyes for a purpose: to discern the ways to live.

Learning to see with the eyes of God so we may more faithfully live in our families, neighborhoods, and world. Thats a good meditation to end the week with.
