Sunday Citation

“It is because gemstones so pointedly reflect God’s glory that we regard them as beautiful. It is written on the heart of man to appreciate glory, and it takes a great act of the will to pervert this attraction. We delight in a beautiful sunset, in the sound of rushing water, and in gemstones, because each of these images the very glory of God Himself. Fallen man may not want God, but he does want God’s glory.”

-James Jordan in Through New Eyes: Developing a Biblical View of the World (1988), p. 76
