Reflection 6.14.16

Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime;
therefore, we must be saved by hope.

Nothing true or beautiful makes complete sense
in any context of history;
therefore, we must be saved by faith.

Nothing we do, no matter how virtuous,
can be accomplished alone;
therefore, we are saved by love.

~Reinhold Niebuhr
