Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.

  1. “It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.” This is so true! If it were not for my sin that separates me from God, I would not know that I needed Him so. And if Jesus had not taken that sin upon Himself on the cross, I would have no means of communicating with my Creator! What a great quote you have shared. Peace, Linda

    oh my goodness, I love this quote. what a fascinating concept about how God relates to us. I love it. Perhaps that is why there is always that twinge of sadness, loneliness, brokenness, in our interactions on this earth. We can feel the wall that wasn’t always there.

    The wall that won’t always be there (!).

      You make me thankful about that wall that connects
      and excited at the same time in breaking it yet continuously connect with Him — deeply, in most meaningful way!

      Yes Max, just like dogs and human
      — there may be reasons to separate
      yet you actually connect like no other
      — it’s the love, right?
      🙂
