"Each of us is a distinct flower or tree in the spiritual garden of God--precious, each for our own sake, in the eyes of Him who is even now making us. Each of us is watered and shone upon and filled with life for the sake of becoming His flower, His completed being, which will blossom out of us at last to the glory and pleasure of the great gardener."

"Each individual, then, is in God's sight worthwhile. Life and action, thought and intent, are sacred."

I liked the format. The original and the more readable version in the next chapter. Very deep. A little too deep for me and thus three stars rather than four.

Reading this is almost like reading the Gospel of John; the words are simple, the insights profound. It requires a slow contemplative read. Thanks to Michael Philips who translated and explicated it.
