Profundity

I just finished reading The Secret Life of Bees, by Sue Monk Kidd.  I recommend it.  It's moving.  I was crying behind my sunglasses at the pool.

This passage, in particular, struck me.

"People, in general, would rather die than forgive.  It's that hard.  If God said in plain language, "I'm giving you a choice, forgive or die," a lot of people would go ahead and order their coffin."

Huh.  So true.  That's something to think about, isn't it?
