The wonder of all wonders

"That is the wonder of all wonders, that God loves the lowly.... God is not ashamed of the lowliness of human beings. God marches right in. He chooses people as his instruments and performs his wonders where one would least expect them. God is near to lowliness; he loves the lost, the neglected, the unseemly, the excluded, the weak and the broken. Where human beings say, "Lost," God says, "Found"; where people say, "Condemned," God says, "Saved"; where people say, "No!" God says, "Yes!" - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I know i often include quotes like this one, but i can't help it, the fact that our God is like this never ceases to make my heart rejoice.
