Winsome Words 12/20/13

The tremendous figure which fills the Gospels…never concealed His tears.  He showed them plainly on His open face at any daily sight, such as the far sight of His native city.  Yet He concealed something…He never restrained His anger.  He flung furniture down the front steps of the Temple and asked men how they expected to escape the damnation of Hell.  Yet He restrained something.  I say it with reverence: there was in that shattering personality a thread that must be called shyness.  There was something that He hid from all men when He went up a mountain to pray…There was some one thing that was too great for God to show us when He walked upon our earth; and I have sometimes fancied that it was His mirth.    GK Chesterton
