The Infinite Attention of God
Picked up what I think is another gem from CS Lewis. It helps me have a high view of God.
God is not hurried along in the time stream of this universe any more than an author is hurried along the imaginary time of his own novel. He has infinite attention to spare for each one of us........
If you picture time as a straight line which we have to travel, then you must picture God as the whole page on which the line is drawn. We come to the parts of the line one by one: we have to leave A behind before we get to B, and cannot reach C until we leave B behind. God, from above or outside or all round, contains the whole line, and sees it all.
Isn't that a great illustration? I think so.
