Never safe from us

 

God himself is never safe from us…He comes in such a way that we can always turn him down…in the hungry people we do not have to feed…in the lonely people we do not have to comfort…in all the desperate human need of people everywhere that we are always free to turn our backs upon.

Frederick Buechner, Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, “The Face in the Sky”
