Random Thought: Cross Purposes

He who looks at the pain and suffering in the world and concludes that there is no God is like a hammer that complains that a pile of lumber and a box of nails is not a house. It forgets that there is an architect, and a carpenter, and that it, after all, is a hammer.


There is enough beauty in the world to assure us there is a heaven and enough ugliness to remind us that it is not here.


The tragedy of the church is that we are often about cross purposes instead of being about the purposes of the cross.
