We do not know if God forgives. We can’t. When we reciteGod saves, God loves, or Jesus lives!—They may not, or They might.We graceless mortals, though, can learnto listen and adaptto lessons, love our foes, and turnthe cheek that isn’t slapped.The Perfect Deity cannot;Perfection is not learned.So what we’ll get is what we’ve got,as far as He’s concerned,as great as He has always been,and unsurpassed in love,I’m sure. But we surpass Him inpotential to improve!Not that I’m proud: Though man aloneenjoys this differentialof bettering himself, it’s on-ly difference in potential.
