Highest Joy – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

To go one’s way under the sign of the cross is not misery and desperation, but peace and refreshment for the soul, it is the highest joy. ¬†Then we do not walk under our self-made laws and burdens, but under the yoke of him who knows us and who walks under the yoke with us. ¬†Under his yoke we are certain of his nearness and communion.

From: Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

Water as Spiritual Practice – Jesus

Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.

Matthew 25.34-36
