Following Christ

If you have any knowledge at all of human nature, you know that those who only admire the truth will, when danger appears, become traitors. The admirer is infatuated with the false security of greatness; but if there is any inconvenience or trouble, he pulls back. Admiring the truth, instead of following it, is just as dubious a fire as the fire of erotic love, which at the turn of the hand can be changed into exactly the opposite, to hate, jealousy, and revenge. Christ, however, never asked for admirers, worshipers, or adherents. He consistently spoke of “followers” and “disciples.” -Soren Kierkegaard

Evie's Story said...

Thinking of you as you prepare for your blessed arrival in a few short weeks. While I know nothing will ever replace the loss of sweet Evie in your hearts, I am praying for much healing for you both as you hold this new wee one in your arms. May you continue to be comforted and gain strength and sufficiency of grace from the Lord.
Blessings
Mandy (Evie's mommy)
