God Is Not Small-Minded

In the latest Lisbeth Salander novel, “The Girl In the Spider’s Web,” the detective Jan Bublanski has begun to doubt the existence of God. Which the unrelenting investigation of murders might do to a person.

So Bublanski goes to see his rabbi.

The rabbi told him, “What matters is not that we believe in God. God is not small-minded.”

“What matters is for us to understand that life is serious and rich. We should appreciate it and also try to make the world a better place. Whoever finds a balance between the two is close to God.”

Isn’t that wonderful? Wonderful on multiple counts. God is not small-minded. Life is serious and rich. Finding the balance between appreciating life and making the world a better place is the human challenge.
