Thursday Quote Day: Tim Keller

For this week’s “Thursday Quote Day” here is another quote from pastor and author Tim Keller:

“We must love many things—and when these good things are taken away, it will hurt. And yet, if we cultivate within ourselves a deep rest in God, an existential grasp of His love for us, then we will find that suffering can sting and cause pain, but it can’t uproot us, overthrow us. Because suffering can’t touch our main thing—God, His love and His salvation.” (Tim Keller Walking with God through Pain and Suffering)
