“Whatever it is that keeps the finer faculties of the mind awake, wonder alive, and the interest above mere eating and drinking, moneymaking and money saving; whatever it is that gives gladness, sorrow, or hope is simply a divine gift that comes with salvation. It is the gift of life, through Jesus Christ, that lifts us out of the mire and up on the rock. It keeps a way open for the entrance of deeper, holier, grander influences emanating from the same riches of the Godhead.”
From The Best of George Macdonald pg. 88.
