Grace

"We have all of us been told that grace is to be found in the universe. But in our human foolishness and shortsightedness we imagine divine grace to be finite... But the moment comes when our eyes are opened, and we see and realize that grace is infinite. Grace, my friends, demands nothing from us but that we shall await it with confidence and acknowledge it in gratitude."
- General Loewenhielm, Babette's Feast (quoted in "What's so Amazing About Grace?" by Phillip Yancey, pg. 25)
