Reflection — October 20th
Raskolnikov, a student and murderer, who deserves the punishment of the law upon him for his crime. A punishment of exile which he receives. But… undeserved and unexpectedly he finds himself loved by Sofya, who for love of Raskolnikov accompanies him into his Siberian exile in Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Lover of those who love him not,
Lover of those who don’t deserve your love,
we are humbled before you.
Your grace isn’t fair…that’s why it’s grace,
Your love lifts us into your loving presence when we don’t deserve it.
