Moulded by him

‘God did not make others as I would have made them. God did not give them to me so that I could control them, but so that I might find the Creator by means of them.  Now other people, in the freedom with which they were created, become an occasion for me to rejoice, whereas before they were only a nuisance and trouble for me. God does not want to mould others into image that seems good to me, that is, into my own image’

Dietrich Bonhoeffer quoted in ‘The way of the dragon or the way of the lamb’, p. 117
