The Most Important thing about You

girl-drawingA kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew.

She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s art work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”

The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks like.”

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, “They will in just a minute.”1

A. W. Tozer declared that the most important thing about you, is what comes to mind when you think about God.

He said, “The most portentous fact about any man, is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he, in his deep heart, conceives God to be like. Were we able to extract from any man a complete answer to the question, ‘What comes to your mind when you think of about God,’ we might predict with certainty the spiritual future of that man.”2 “Woe is me, for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts”

Isaiah said, “Woe is me, for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts” (6:5).

He was filled with an overwhelming view of his unworthiness, when he had a revelation of God to his heart

“An exalted view of God brings a clear view of sin and a realistic view of self. A diminished view of God brings a reduced concern for sin and an inflated view of self ” (Henry Blackaby).3
