In God’s great wisdom he has deliberately made the symbols of the temple unique, because their very uniqueness demands the mind ask the questions:
Why do we do that?
What’s the meaning of that?
What’s the significance of this?
These are the very questions God wants us to answer, the danger is not that we will ask the questions, the danger is that we become so familiar we stop asking the questions.Michael S. Wilcox, Blessings of the House of the Lord, 1999
This quote goes great with this article – think about it.
