DEEP THINK

CHRISTLIKE COMPASSION

From the June 2007 issue of The Christian Science Journal


I HAVE ALWAYS CHERISHED THIS OLD FRENCH PROVERB, this sweet reminder of God's tender presence: "God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb. " And I treasure this verse not because I think God is involved in the minutiae of daily life (to the point of making sure a little lamb isn't caught in the wind), but because those words assure me that the nature of God—of infinite, divine Love—is to be love, everywhere, always.
