A quote which is challenging me today, will it challenge you?

"God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him." From John Piper.

I pulled it from a Proverbs 31 Devotional which I read every day. Today's devotional is by Amy Carroll an the paragraph preceeding Pipe's quote sasy this:

"I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word." Psalm 119: 16 (NIV)

In the Westminster Shorter Catechism, this life defining question is asked, "What is the chief end of man?" The answer is simple yet profound. It says, "Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever." One way we can bring Him great glory is by using our gifts and fulfilling our calling – by serving. It's too easy to fall short, though, by forgetting the second part of our chief duty. We are called not only to work for Him, but to enjoy Him.
