Stand in Awe

Here's a quote for the day, from this book I'm reading called "Deepening Your Conversation with God" by Ben Patterson:

"No character in the Bible found anything approaching a face-to-face encounter with God anything less than shattering. We must learn to act and think as people who are amazed that our proximity to holy things has not left us vaporized."

"Do not be quick with your mouth,
do not be hasty in your heart
to utter anything before God.
God is in heaven
and you are on earth, so let your words be few.
As a dream comes where there are many cares,
so the speech of a fool when there are many words...
Therefore stand in awe of God."
Ecclesiastes 5:1-3, 7
