Tftd: Lord Sacks 29/10/2016

thought for the day, by former chief rabbi lord sacks

What worries me as I turn the pages of Genesis is to read how quickly humans betrayed their role as guardians of the natural universe and turned instead to violence, murder and war. And what worries me as I turn the pages of the daily news is that we’re doing it again, as if we’d learned nothing in all the intervening centuries.
What science and religion should both be teaching us right now is humility and awe, knowing how small we are in the scheme of things, and how dangerous it is to destroy what it took almost infinite time and space to create.”
