Thoreau said that most people live lives of quiet desperation. Agree? I recall a departed loved one who seemed to typify this. Hers for years was a joyless existence. She not only worried about herself but imported other needless worries. Conversations were less than carefree and uplifting. They were stilted and joyless. She rebuffed the opportunity to tell her salvation story. I saw little evidence of one.
Short of the peace of Jesus, many exist in murky, quiet despair. How unnecessary and sad.
Jesus said in John 10.10: “The thief cometh not, but to steal, and to kill,and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
