“For the Kingdom is the Holy not the moral…”

“For the Kingdom is the Holy not the moral; the Beautiful not the correct; the Perfect not the adequate; Charity not law.”

– from my morning readings in “Abba” by Evelyn UnderhillSacred Heart of Jesus by Lawrence OP

It is never enough to “lead a good life”.  To join the Kingdom we must embrace salvation.  We must accept God’s charity towards us to escape the law.
