The mystery of goodness

Nicholas Lash again:

The darkness of the world is beyond all explanation. Which is why we speak 'about' the mystery of evil. We to often forget however, that goodness is a mystery as well: that kindness, generosity, the 'giftedness' of reality is also beyond all explanation. (p.165 Theology for Pilgrims DLT, 2008)

The question then is which mystery do we lean towards and so orient the way we live? Will we open our hands to receive the gift or keep our hands clenched in anger at the darkness?
