Grace, God’s method.

April 3, 2009

Penance and retribution do not transform.  The flagellation of self or the flagellation of another, whether literally or figuratively, do not transform.  Severity does not change the heart.

Grace does.

Grace — kindness undeserved, favor unmerited — transforms.  This is God’s method.

What’s ours?
