We should remember that God is not only one hundred percent love – which might have allowed him to forgive our sins without the cross. He is also one hundred percent justice. (pg. 62 )

Christ comforts and heals, saves and forgives – we know that; but we must not forget that he judges too. If we truly love him, we will love everything in him; not only his compassion and mercy, but his sharpness too. It is his sharpness that prunes and purifies. (pg. 63)

Both of the above quotes are from “The Center” by J. Heinrich Arnold, one of the selections in Bread And Wine. Like last year, during Lent I’m working my way through this books of readings. They inspire me, cause me to reflect, and challenge me.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Play along. I cheated, but the rules are easy. Grab your current read, open to a random page, and give us two teaser sentences. Remember, no spoilers.

My copy was borrowed from the library and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon associate.
