On Moral Practices And God

It is impossible to keep our moral practices sound and our inward attitudes right while our idea of God is erroneous or inadequate.

If we would bring back spiritual power to our lives, we must begin to think of God more nearly as He is ~ A. W. Tozer

God, that I might see You and know You as You are and not as I think or imagine You are. May my understanding of You be pure and not one I create. Obliterate every wrong image, idea, perspective, thought of who you are that I hold. Help me to know, know You. Amen.
