Marrying Kahlil Gibran and AW Tozer Together

Thanks to Jamie for re-introducing Kahlil Gibran to me after many years.

I came across this quote from him, "All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind."

This reminded me of a quote by Mr. Tozer, "God is always bigger than anything God can say, because words are inadequate to express God and what God can do. Any promise God ever made, God has to fulfill it. The reason being, God is so great, His heart so kind and His desire so intense and tremendous that language does not express it. Not the Greek, not the English, no language expresses God. It cannot. If language could contain God then language would be equal to God"

To "marry" the two together, the written words that we have in front of us are merely CRUMBS compared to the actual MIND and GOODNESS of God.

WORDS cannot contain all that God thinks or says, but are merely a minute TASTE of the entire thing.
