God Can Only Be All Or Nothing

“As Abraham Heschel wrote, God is of no importance if He is not of supreme importance, which means that in our subjective understanding, God can only be all or nothing. If we genuinely know God, then we can’t know Him as anything but All…Every attempt to reduce God to a mere part of life is doomed to fail, for it does not correspond to reality and will result in a truncated, unsatisfactory form of human life. Part of `letting God be God’ is letting Him completely fill your world… To be oblivious to the presence of God is to miss the entire point of human life.” ~Abbot Joseph Homick, How Lovely Is His Dwelling Place
