God is so generous with His grace that it sometimes seems radically out of balance with our good works. Here's an experience from my life. #grace   #babies  #newborn #family

Truly one of the world's most important books. 

A favorite passage: "We are each blessed by God, each precious in his sight, each with our role in his story, each with our own song in the music of humankind. To be a child of Abraham is to learn to respect the other children of Abraham even if their way is not ours. We know that we are loved. That must be enough. To insist that being loved entails that others be unloved is to fail to understand love itself." #NotInGodsName   #ReligiousFreedom   #RabbiSacks   #GoodReads   #Religion

I've spent too much of my life thrashing about in attempts to be what other people are and to have what they have, all the while not trusting God's promise that I have something special to offer and forgetting His teaching that I need to be content with that offering.

As Rabbi Sacks teaches, "Peace comes when we see our reflection in the face of God and let go of the desire to be someone else." #LDS   #Mormon   #RabbiSacks   #Wisdom   #Christian   #Scriptures
