Something to think about | The infinite vistas of the Kingdom of God that open up before man are not presented as ways for man to escape his lot, but rather they represent new dimensions for human life and new opportunities for the exercise of duty. The divine grace which Christ promises to those who have become discouraged is not intended to be a prop or a crutch to help them escape from their essential duties; rather, this grace is offered in order to inspire a greater effort. What grace gives is very real, but what it requires is first of all effort. All this is part of the divine paradox.
