The Apple of God's Eye?

In the this article, John Piper addresses an issue that has long been confusing to me.

The Bible teaches that God is supremely valuable. It also teaches that he delights in His children. So how does Someone of supreme value delight in/give praise to someone of lesser value?

The article offers one explanation... it is long, but worth the read.

My favorite line: "When God’s delight in us lures us to delight in being delighted in, we are ceasing to do the very thing God delights in."

I quite liked that line as well... it is very "Piper-esque." Not to mention that it is just spot on.
