Today’s Reading is Isaiah 55:1-13.
Ludwig Feuerbach found that “Religion is the outward projection of man’s inner nature”. That is so true!
Unfortunately faith is always in danger of becoming religious. Isaiah reminds us that God is bigger than any religious effort:
“My thoughts,” says the LORD, “are not like yours, and my ways are different from yours. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are my ways and thoughts above yours.”
Religion is about making God manageable, domesticating God’s incomprehensible greatness.
God, give me the faith to abstain from religion!
