Because I am sure of what I hope for, I have no doubt that ultimately "love wins," that grace will triumph. The question for me, then, becomes what will my role in this victory be? Will I help to bring it about even in myself by giving what I haven’t (or don’t trust/believe that I have) received? Will I give/lose my life (love/grace) for the other, regardless of any expectation that I might somehow find it (my life/love/grace) as a result? Can I for/give, expecting nothing in return?
