Act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God (Mic. 6:8).
God has two dwellings; one in heaven, the other in a meek and thankful heart.

The Human Condition: Living when life hurts


Since suffering has been to one degree or other in quite few recent conversations. I listened to a Tim Keller talk this morning, one that I'd seen before. In my opinion he dealt quite well with the topic of suffering in its many respects (the Q/A at the end is also very good); he referenced his points by quoting quite a number of outside sources, which I found interesting as well. I read somewhere I don't remember offhand that true wisdom comes from overcoming suffering and sin and therefore true wisdom is touched with an element of sadness. I think this is from Richard Rohr: "It is only by a foundational trust in the midst of suffering, some ability to bear darkness and uncertainty, and learning to be comfortable with paradox and mystery, that you move from the first half of life to the second."
