All Living Creation Yearns For the Love of God

Source: John Sanidopoulos' Mystagogy

Every living thing seeks love: man, animals and plants. All people seek God and long for Him, regardless of whether they are believers or unbelievers. Some people call themselves atheists, but they do not know that their hearts long after God. For when someone yearns for justice, love and truth, he is really yearning after God. All people long for love that never changes, and for justice that is always the same.... The only difference is that: some oppose Him and others don't; some yearn after Him consciously, while others are not aware that their yearning is really after God.

- Elder Thaddeus of Serbia (+2002)

Thank you for posting these quotes. This one especially rings true. I have the Elder's book and am very much looking forward to reading it. In the meantime, I thank you for these "previews of more to come." To God be the glory.
