When we grow up with animals we learn to forgive, accept, go for a walk with them, give them treats, feed them, play with them, and take care of them, and yet when we get into relationships we often do not give the same consideration
Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore, we are
saved by hope.
Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any
immediate context of history; therefore, we are saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone.
Therefore, we are saved by love.
No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or
foe as from our own; therefore, we are saved by the final form of love
which is forgiveness.
