Thoughts inspired by C.S. Lewis’ Till We Have Faces.
“We must go to your true judges now. I am to bring you there.”
“Why, yes, child. The gods have been accused by you. Now’s their turn.”
“I cannot hope for mercy.”
“Infinite hopes — and fears — may both be yours. Be sure that, whatever else you get, you will not get justice.”
“Are the gods not just?”
“Oh no, child. What would become of us if they were?”
Till We Have Faces, C.S. Lewis
“You are not fair!” That’s a phrase God hears often.
We feel wronged by Him when something goes not the way we expected.
Fox’ wise quote from Till We Have Faces brings it into perspective.
It’s a good thing God is not completely just toward us.
It’s an amazing news that He also has grace and mercy.
