The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums.
We are happy when for everything inside us there is a corresponding something outside us.

Every time somebody speaks of my honesty, there is someone who quivers inside me.
Do not suppress it – that would hurt you inside. Do not express it – this would not only hurt you inside, it would cause ripples in your surroundings. What you do is transform it.
