quote for today

i received these via email. i liked both of them so much that i'm including both of them today. Underneath the Surface by Markus Baum The human being is more than a mere biological machine. Every person is intended, ennobled and valued by Godóand that includes the sick and disabled. When we take seriously what Jesus said and did, we recognize that a person can be whole and well in the best sense of these terms even if disabledósay, without a leg or an arm, blind or deaf, or suffering from paraplegia or mental retardation. Such a person can be inwardly sound as a bell, with a warm and joyful heart that doesnít constantly grumble and rail against life. Action, Not Words by Dietrich Bonhoeffer Humanly speaking, we could interpret the Sermon on the Mount in a thousand different ways.† Jesus knows only one possibility: simple surrender and obedience. He does not want it to be discussed as an ideal; he really means us to get on with it.
