Ethics for a Monday

“The freedom of Jesus is not arbitrary choice of one among countless possibilities. Instead, it consists precisely in the complete simplicity of his action, for which there are never several possibilities, conflicts, or alternatives, but always only one. Jesus call this one option the will of God. He calls it his food to do this wil. This ill of God is his life. He lives and acts not out of the knowledge of good and evil, but out of the will of God. There is only one will of God. In it, the origin of everything is regained. It is the source of freedom and simplicity in everything that is done” —Bonhoeffer, Ethics, page 313
