Learn to Praise

kiddPsalm 1 tells us that God simply does not care to satisfy the intellectual curiosity of cooly aloof inquirers: his passion is for dragging ugly wallflowers onto the dance floor.  When we come to him looking merely for a respectable philosophical system, he not so subtly reshapes the question: “So it’s truth you think you want?  Come sing in my choir, then we’ll talk.”  In other words, learn to praise.  Understanding will follow.
