Sri Satya Sai Baba

Do not make God modern to suit your fancy.  He is neither ancient nor modern.  His countenance never changes, nor His glory.  Present Him, if you must, in a modern manner or present-day style so that He may be understood today. If a child is reluctant to swallow a pill, insert it into a banana and offer him the fruit.  He will swallow both the fruit and pill. But do not change the pill to suit the whims of the child's taste. Then the illness cannot be cured.
