The American Dream?

Posted: March 24, 2004 in Everything

In an American Christian culture that values wealth, power, beauty and success as much as it does, I’m always challenged and inspired by people who remind me of what LIFE is really about.

Cherish these words from Philip Yancey:

“In a world ruled by law, grace stands as a sign of contradiction. We want fairness; the gospel gives us an innocent man nailed to a cross who cries out, “Father, forgive them.” We want respectability; the gospel elevates tax collectors, prodigals, and Samaritians. We want success; the gospel reverses the terms, moving the poor and downtrodden to the head of the line and the wealthy and famous to the rear.”
