Resistance is dauntless audacity of the lesser against

Resistance is dauntless audacity of the lesser against the greater through a will to suffering?the essential quality of existing?because suffering most clearly evinces the will-power of the sufferer. History is the story of ?I? as observed and evaluated by ?me.? When the history is written by my hands, I will fear nothing and live as if I am the history.

When we begin to do for the least

When we begin to do for the least of these what David did for Mephibosheth, and what Jesus called his followers to do, we discover this: we are the broken and the needy. They. Are. Us. Perhaps more openly and undeniably, but all the same, they remind us of our true state before God. That is the gift they bring to God’s people.

Discovering more joy does not, save us from

Discovering more joy does not, save us from the inevitability of hardship and heartbreak. In fact, we may cry more easily, but we will laugh more easily too. Perhaps we are just more alive. Yet as we discover more joy, we can face suffering in a way that ennobles rather than embitters. We have hardship without becoming hard. We have heartbreaks without being broken.
