Do you know that ?
God does not save us because of what we’ve done.
Only a puny god could be bought with tithes.
Only an egotistical god would be impressed with our pain.
Only a temperamental god could be satisfied by sacrifices.
Only a heartless god would sell salvation to the highest bidders.
And only a great God does for his children what they can’t do for themselves.
God’s delight is received upon surrender, not awarded upon conquest.
it starts with a plea for help, an acknowledgement of moral destitution, an admission of inward paucity.
