God Never Tires of Saving Lives


Many may have felt a certain monotony of some of the vicarious work done in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  We all know the worth of saving souls is great.  Do you think God gets tired of saving souls? Read this wonderful article by Samuel B. Hislop.

G.K. Chesterton, a Roman Catholic thinker from the early 20th century, once wrote that “grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony.” Children, Chesterton said, “have abounding vitality because they are in spirit fierce and free; therefore, they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, ‘Do it again,’ and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead.”

Chesterton thought that God was, in this way, much like a child.

“Perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony,” Chesterton wrote. “It is possible that God says every morning, ‘Do it again’ to the sun; and every evening, ‘Do it again’ to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
