In God's amazing love,
"CHRIST IS the truth. He is truth so clear that we can see through to the bottom of the sea. When my eyes are bad, it seems that my eyeglasses are dim. The water is clear, but when my eyes are bad, I cannot see the bottom. I cannot distinguish between water and land. As my eyes get better, I can gradually see. When we brighten our souls in regard to God, it is like that. When we have an experience of God, and live in God, our souls become clear, and then the universe becomes clear. When our hearts become clear, back of all things we find there is the plan of God." --Toyohiko Kagawa
