The Opportunity of a Setback

Grace is for the humble, not for the self-satisfied. So a setback, a serious check, the crumbling of a whole majestic world, may be the necessary road to a renaissance. For each of us, a setback can become the opportunity of a return to oneself and a personal meeting with God.
--Paul Tournier, Guilt and Grace: A Psychological Study, 116
