“…little by little – less by taking pains than by taking it easy – the forgiven person starts to become a forgiving person, the healed person to become a healing person, the loved person to become a loving person. God does most of it. The end of the process…is eternal life.” (from Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking pp. 104-105)
It is a goal to be sanctified. I would like it if my sense of feeling forgiven leant an urgency to my own ability to forgive. I hold back. What am I waiting for? Same goes for healing. If there was a way to “bottle healing” it would be a “free dispensary” It would be grand if my desire to live life as a loving person was inspired from the love that I have received from those who first loved me. It is by Grace through faith that this will happen. ~ Linda
