HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL- Sept. 25, 2016-ACCEPTANCE

Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Director Beth Foster

“In world mythology, there are countless examples of tragic characters whose greatest strength is also the source of their undoing. But the ancient Greeks and Romans also held the view that acceptance is the beginning of wisdom.” — Simon Van Booy

From Webster

wisdom

noun wis·dom \ˈwiz-dəm\
  • : knowledge that is gained by having many experiences in life

acceptance

noun ac·cep·tance \ik-ˈsep-tən(t)s, ak-\
