Saved by love

November 11, 2011

If you are penitent, you love. And if you love you are of God. All things are atoned for, all things are saved by love. If I, a sinner even as you are, am tender with you and have pity on you, how much more will God have pity upon you. Love is such a priceless treasure that you can redeem the whole world by it, and cleanse not only your own sins but the sins of others.

– Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881), Russian novelist in The Brothers Karamazov

    Shawn, this is great. It is so true-if we all could show love to everyone how different this world would be. People seem to forget we are all God’s children.Thank-you again for doing this each day–I forward many to family and friends.
    May God continue to bless you with peace,love and happiness.
