The God Gamble

I read this today on John Piper's blog... the last of ten resolutions by the late Clyde Kilby, who was a professor of literature at Wheaton. It's a bit of a variant on Pascal's Wager, but one that captured my heart because of its poetry.

Even if I turn out to be wrong, I shall bet my life on the assumption that this world is not idiotic, neither run by an absentee landlord, but that today, this very day, some stroke is being added to the cosmic canvas that in due course I shall understand with joy as a stroke made by the architect who calls himself Alpha and Omega.

You've been tagged:    The idea… it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for one blog friend. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed!

Amen to the lat Clyde. He can be assured that he is the best place, not a better one, but the best.
