I sought to hear the voice of God!

“I sought to hear the voice of God and climbed the topmost steeple, but God declared: “Go down again – I dwell among the people.”
— John Henry Newman

I particularly like this poem since it reminds me that we are doing so much for God but so little for people. Living in Texas I am fascinated by the amount of money spent on and in the Churches, Mosque, Synagogues and other places of worship.  I was at a friend’s house and saw a picture of a Mosque in Dubai that will cost 1.5  billion Dollars WOW! I am not sure why we cannot use the same money to make God happy by helping people. Who are we trying to impress?
