wishing you a merry christmas!
today i am meditating on the beautiful implications of having a savior that became man..
"for whatever reason God chose to make man as he is- limited and suffering and subject to sorrows and death- he had the honesty and the courage to take his own medicine, whatever game he is playing with His creation, He has kept his own rules and played fair. he can exact nothing from man that He has not exacted from Himself. He himself has gone through the whole human experience. from the trivial irritations of family life and the cramping restrictions of hard work and no money to the worst horrors of pain and humiliation, defeat, despair, and death. when he was a man he played man, he was born in poverty, died in disgrace, and thought it all worthwhile."
