APPRECIATING PERFECTION

The infinite and enduring love which God has for each one of His ideas should be balanced in the heart of every individual by a deep sense of appreciation for His goodness. Should we be satisfied merely to receive the benefits of God's bounty? Does not a corresponding duty of appreciation devolve upon us?

God ordains and establishes for all creation only concord. What He utters and makes is perfect. His infinite creation not only is in assent with that which He establishes as fact, but loves to be thus in agreement, for what God makes is by nature completely good, harmonious, joyous, whole. There is not a single flaw in all His creation. God necessarily appreciates His own expression, and His own expression or reflection necessarily stands in a position of perpetual appreciation of its infinite benefactor. This is a basic truth which is capable of proof in everyday activities.
