God's opinion

The story is recounted of Benjamin Jowett, when he was Master of Balliol College in Oxford.  Apparently someone asked him at dinner, "Dr. Jowett, we would like to know what your opinion of God is," to which he is said to have replied, "I should think it a great impertinence were I to express my opinion about God.  The only constant anxiety of my life is to know what is God's opinion of me."  

Quoted by Christopher Ash in Job: The Wisdom of the Cross (Wheaton, Ill.: Crossway Books, 2014), p.374.]
