Day 9 of 30

The Shack, Chapter 8 - A Breakfast of Champions

As Wally commented and I mentioned earlier, the picture of the trinity in this book in incredible. Enjoy a few quotes...

When you chose independence over relationship, you become a danger to each other. Others become objects to be manipulated or managed for you own happiness. Authority, as you usually think of it, is merely the excuse the strong use to make others conform to what they want. (page 123)

If you truly learned to regard each other's concerns as significant as your own, there would be no need for hierchy. (page 124)

You humans are so lost and damaged that to you it is almost incomprehensible that relationship could exist outside of heirchy like you do. So you think God must relate inside a heirchy like you do. But we do not. (page 124)
