God Expands Our Freedom

Note:  I am indebted most every day to Richard Rohr.  His work with men and spirituality is true and therefore useful.  I commend his work to you. JWS

“St. Paul says that God both initiates and cooperates in all human growth. God “works together with” us (Romans 8:28 [1]), which means both our workings are crucial. Every moment, God is trying to expand our freedom. Can you imagine that?
ImageGod is trying to make this choice more alive, more vital, more clear, more true. God even uses our mistakes and our sin in that regard.  Nothing at all is wasted. If that is not the providence of God, what else would be “providential”?  The provident care of God is that God is working for our wholeness and for our full liberation—probably more than we are”
 Richard Rohr
