“Humility is crucial to the Lenten journey, and it is truly difficult for anyone to be humble. Sometimes we really do know more than the next person. Sometimes we really do know what is correct or more life-giving. But unless it is our job to correct, we do not need to go about fixing everyone and everything.”

-from Sacred Silence

“God does not love you because you are good; God loves you because God is good. And then you can be good because you draw upon such an Infinite Source. The older I get, the more I am sure that God does all the giving and we do all of the receiving. God is always and forever the initiator in my life, and I am, on occasion, the half-hearted respondent. That’s just true! My mustard seed of a response seems to be more than enough for a humble God, even though the mustard seed is “the tiniest of all the seeds” (Matthew 13:32).
