When all our idols are taken away…

When all of our idols are taken away, all our securities and defense mechanisms, we find out who we really are. We’re so little, so poor, so empty-and a shock to ourselves. But the biblical God takes away our shame and we are eventually able to present ourselves in an honest and humble form. Then we find out who we really are and who God is for us – and it is more than enough.

– Richard Rohr
