Here the practical man will naturally say: And pray how am I going to do this? How shall I detach myself from the artificial world to which I am accustomed? Where is the brake that shall stop the wheel of my image-making mind?

Crumbs or the Loaf?

This chapter whets my appetite for what’s to come both in this book and in seeing Life through more opened eyes.

“…so anxiously acquisitive of the crumbs that you never lift your eyes to the loaf.”

Ouch. I often do settle for the crumbs when God has invited me to feast at the table with Him. In those precious moments where I’ve had “late night” feasts with the Father like Robert mentioned (that moment of knowing what life was about), I understand that I was made for that, for so much more than I usually settle for. It leaves me hungry for more of those times. God is so satisfying when we allow him to fill us.
