on the nature of things.

Robert Farrar Capon, The Supper of the Lamb, p. 20:

Things must be met for themselves. To take them only for their meaning is to convert them into gods–to make them too important, and therefore to make them unimportant all together. Idolatry has two faults. It is not only a slur on the true God; it is also an insult to true things.

Trying to learn this–how to love not only things, but my fellow creatures, fellow people, and even God for themselves and not only for how they can benefit me.
