Quote of Note #150: Dependence on God

Song Sparrow; photo by GAC


“To depend on God is to be free of men, things, and self. It is to be able to take pleasure in all his gifts, without being the slave to any. It is to be able, as occasion demands, to spend and to save, to speak and to forbear, to act and to rest, to be grave and gay, to defend oneself and to surrender.”

Paul Tournier, The Meaning of Persons. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1957, page 228.
