I do not know if Elizabeth Edwards, the wife of John Edwards who fathered a child with a mistress, professes to be a Christian. But I was moved when Ms. Edwards went to give a Christmas gift to Quinn, the baby her husband had fathered. I wondered how many believers could have shown such a selfless expression of love and acceptance. In the midst of stage four cancer and the demise of her thirty-two year marriage, Elizabeth said she desired to show an example to her children.
May those of us who profess to follow Jesus be challenged by such a wonderful act of sacrificial grace.
