Thursday Quote Day: Tim Keller

This week’s “Thursday Quote Day” features another quote from pastor and author Tim Keller:

“Our need for worth is so powerful that whatever we base our identity and value on we essentially ‘deify.’ We will look to it with all the passion and intensity of worship and devotion, even if we think ourselves as highly irreligious.”  (Tim Keller)

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

“…God’s grace and forgiveness, while free to the recipient, are always costly for the giver…. From the earliest parts of the Bible, it was understood that God could not forgive without sacrifice. No one who is seriously wronged can “just forgive” the perpetrator…. But when you forgive, that means you absorb the loss and the debt. You bear it yourself. All forgiveness, then, is costly.”  (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)
