Piper quote

“We are all starved for the glory of God, not self. No one goes to the Grand Canyon to increase self-esteem. Why do we go? Because there is greater healing for the soul in beholding splendor than there is in beholding self.”
-John Piper, Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ

It is so much better to behold splendor than it is to behold self!
Well said Piper, as usual!
