Missed Opportunities

“There are many things the Spirit could do through us, for the healing and redeeming of the world, if it were not for our cowardice, slackness, fastidiousness, or self-centered concentration on our own jobs. Individual Christians cannot attain to their full stature till they throw in their hand with the saints and the angels: more, with the broken, the struggling, and the meek. But most of us are too prudent, too careful to do that.”

-Evelyn Underhill, The School of Charity, p.96
