This was a great book on Gods love and mercy. He touched on a lot of topics ministering to others, loving your neighbor, judging others, sin....

The book was Mannings usual honesty, loving stories.

rarely lives up to our expectations.

He goes on to say... What follows logically is that we blithely take for granted everything that comes our way. The spiritually poor- like the economically poor - experience genuine gratitude and appreciate the slightest gift. Ironically, the more we grow in spirit of Jesus Christ, the poorer we become. The more we realize that everything is gift, the more tenor of our life becomes one of humble, joyful thanksgiving.
