Striking the balance because Jesus shows us both God and our own wretchedness


Knowing God without knowing our own wretchedness makes for pride.
Knowing our own wretchedness without knowing God makes for despair.
Knowing Jesus Christ strikes the balance because he shows us both God and our own wretchedness.
– Blaise Pascal
