A good quote

As we were sitting down to lunch, Camille whispered to me a quote that's been on the dining room wall for some time.

"The only answer to unreasonable evil, is unreasonable good!"

If you haven't read any Watchman Nee lately you may not recognize the context but it is so radical, so good, so true, so Christ-like.

Camille was making reference to an unpleasant visitor that had come by and she was right: that is what our response is always to be. It is the believer's reaction that is important, not what causes it.
