Therefore, We Are Saved By Love

Blue and Gold by Nicolas Evariste with kind permission

Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime;
therefore, we must be saved by hope.
Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;therefore, we must be saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone;therefore we are saved by love.
~ Reinhold Niebuhr ~
