The incarnation means that for whatever reason God chose to let us fall into a condition of being limited, to suffer, to be subject to sorrows and death””he has nonetheless had the honesty and the courage to take
his own medicine…. He himself has gone through the whole of human experience””from the trivial irritations of family life and the cramping restrictions of hard work and lack of money to the worst horrors of pain
and humiliation, defeat, despair, and death…. He was born in povertyand…suffered infinite pain””all for us””and thought it well worth his while.
–Dorothy Sayers; (Those of you who are bibliophiles and research types heads up, I have seen this lots of places including from Tim Keller, but I am thus far unable to find it in Sayers’ herself and I would love to have the Sayers reference if anyone knows such–KSH)
