All living things long for God

Every living thing seeks love:  man, animals and plants.  All people seek God and long for Him, regardless of whether they are believers or unbelievers.  Some people call themselves atheists, but they do not know that in their hearts they long after God.  For when someone yearns for justice, love and truth, he is really yearning after God.  All people long for love that never changes and justice that is always the same.  All living things long for God.  The only difference is that some oppose Him and others don’t, some yearn after Him consciously while others are not aware that their yearning is really after God.
