The King Who Wanted to See God……..


The Lord is awesome in his greatness; his power is overwhelming.


There was once a king who wanted to see God and he threatened all the priests and wise men with the direst consequences if they did not succeed in showing God to him.

As they were deep in thought along came a shepherd who took the king to a meadow, pointed at the sun and said, “Take a good look.” The king hardly tried when he dropped his head and screamed, “What do you want to do: blind me?”

“But, your majesty,” said the shepherd, “the sun is only one of God’s creatures, a pale image of Himself. If you cannot look at the sun, how could you ever look at God?”

The Lord is awesome in his greatness; his power is overwhelming. 
Though you do your best to praise him, he is greater than you can ever express.
 No one has seen him, no one can describe him, no one can praise him as he deserves. 
Mysteries greater than these are still unknown; we know only a fraction of his works. 
The Lord made the universe and then gave wisdom to devout men .
(The Bible, Sirach 43:29).
