“I realized that all my life, my values were based upon typical middle-class American values: hard work, doing good, living well, owning things, following the rules & being the best I can be... but God clearly says, "those are not MY values. I value justice, mercy & humility.”
― John Green
Our Lord’s first obedience was the will of His Father, not to the needs of men. The saving of men was the natural outcome of His obedience to the Father
– Oswald Chambers –
Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts: And let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; And to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Isaiah the Prophet- Isaiah 55:7
