Quote: Perils

“It’s like, it doesn’t honor God to pretend like everything is OK. That’s the beauty of Jesus that so many people miss.

He’s not unfamiliar with the difficulty of human life. To me that’s what makes Jesus as God beautiful. He totally understands. He went out of his way to prove to us that he understands our situation. So when he has something to say, it’s not coming from this high and lofty standpoint. It’s coming from this person who understands intricately the perils of human existence.”
