"His resurrections are always better than mine."

"Attempting to create our own resurrections is a great temptation of the Christian life. For instance, if someone has slandered me, I'm tempted to create a mini-resurrection by boasting. They deflated me, so I inflate me. Silence keeps me on the dying side of the J-Curve. it's an act of surrender to let my Father vindicate me rather than to try to do so myself. His resurrections are always better than mine. We wait for his wonders."

- Paul Miller "J-Curve" pg. 181
