"I too am greedy, that I too seek to control others and manipulate my world for my own benefit and betterment. "

We hate most in others what we see in ourselves, and our instincts scream to return evil for evil.
Yet by so doing, I enslave myself to those who would enslave and destroy me. The Cross teaches me another way. It teaches me, quite simply, that God is in control of all things, and that His ways are not my ways. It teaches me that the darkest hour comes before dawn, that God can use evil for good, and that only by bending my will and my knee before Him, no matter what the cost, can my own victory and deliverance, and that of others, be purchased. -- Meditations on Good Friday | The Doctor Is In
