On Taking "Yes" For An Answer

This is one of the great consolation passages in the Bible.  The greatest. And as much as I revere the wisdom I find in other religions of the world, you know, there’s nothing like this in any of them.  Other religions, like Buddhism for instance, give you techniques to deal with suffering – effective ones, but they don’t wrap you in a blanket of sheer love like this passage from the mouth of Jesus.  Nothing else comes close.
