Monday Quote: Religion for Men and Angels

'Our religion is a religion for men, not for angels. They have a religion, but God has made no provision for failures in theirs. Forgiveness forms no part of it. But God has made a merciful provision for failures in man's religion. It's a Gospel for prodigals - for broken-down men. Though we lose the path and wander far away there is forgiveness still, and another chance given if we but repent; but for angels there's no second chance, at least as far as we know. Thank God that we are men, and that we have a Gospel for prodigals.'

David Davies, Echoes From the Welsh Hills (1883).
