Reflection — October 19th
Frodo: “It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill Gollum when he had the chance.”
Gandalf: “Pity? It's pity that stayed Bilbo's hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play in it, for good or evil, before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.”
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring.
God of all justice,
You are more merciful than we can imagine or understand.
