God loves and defends those with least economic and social power, and so should we. That is what it means to “do justice.”
—Timothy J. Keller, Generous Justice: How God’s Grace Makes Us Just
Since gold and silver, which are only corruptible metals, are purified and tested by fire, it is but reasonable that our faith, which surpasses all the riches of the world, should be tried.
The only significance of life consists in helping to establish the kingdom of God.
The glory of God, and, as our only means to glorifying [God], the salvation of human souls, is the real business of life.
—C. S. Lewis
