Sunday Morning Quote for October 5, 2014
A tree gives glory to God by being a tree.
For in being what God means it to be, it is obeying Him.
It 'consents', so to speak, to His creative love.
It is expressing an idea which is in God
and which is not distinct from the essence of God,
and therefore a tree imitates God by being a tree.
- Thomas Merton
