worth the trouble

      When you start to think you’re not worth the trouble, imagine being pursued and carried and rejoiced in.

“So He told them this parable: ‘What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and loses one, doesn’t . . . go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.’” Luke 15:4-5

“My God, what is a heart? That Thou should’st it so eye and woo, pouring upon it all Thy art, as if that Thou had nothing else to do?” George Herbert
