God and the human mind

I think both of these by W. Tozer are worthy of considerable reflection:
What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.
If God gives you a watch, are you honoring Him more by asking Him what time it is or by simply consulting the watch?


  1. I'm not sure what comes to my mind when I think about God. Good things come to mind when I think about Jesus. I make a distinction. But I'm wondering if the thought still applies if it's about Jesus. I'd like to think it does. The second thought leaves me stumped as to its significance. Maybe it will come to me in my sleep.

  2. I think Tozer was addressing the anti-intellectualism so often found in Christianity in that second quotation. I think he was saying that God gave us minds so we are not honoring God when we choose not to use them.

  3. OK. Duh! Slapping self across both cheeks with soggy wash cloth. I mean my face of course.
