As Earthly Human Beings

As earthly human beings we have to take account of an earthly future. For the sake of this future we must accept tasks, responsibilities, and joys and sorrows. We need not despise happiness simply because there is so much unhappiness. We should not arrogantly push away the kind hand of God because God’s hand is otherwise so hard.

D. Bonhoeffer, quoted in Metaxas’ Bonhoeffer, p. 408
