Universalist Quote of the Day #236

“A perfect life is not attained in a day.  Men cannot cut cross lots, or take an air-line for the kingdom of heaven.  If we had our way, we should have the bud, the blossom, and the ripened fruit at the same time.  But this is not God’s method.  He gives us ‘first the blade, then the ear, afterwards the full corn in the ear.’

Character is a growth, and it requires time to perfect the full rounded Christian.”

–Rev. D.C. Tomlinson
