Daily Thought: A Passionate God

"The Bible knows nothing of a stoical god who is untouched and unmoved by human affairs.  The God of Scripture is a passionate God who not only displays great emotion but who very frequently acts upon those emotions.  He does so in perfect harmony with His divine holiness and love, never losing balance or perspective.  In other words, he is not flawed with the emotional deficiencies or excesses of men.  But he does manifest great emotion." ~ Gary Carpenter, What the Bible Says about the Heart, p. 87
