Nothing is more odd

"We are indeed an odd army, a motley crew, an unlikely fragrance whose weapon and strategy is to live out what it means to be forgiven through love. Nothing is more odd to a self-centered world than sacrificial love; nothing is more incomprehensible to the fallen heart than withholding revenge and offering the other cheek and carrying the burden of the abuser an extra mile."

Dan Allender, Bold Love, page 146.
