CQOD: 08/26/05 -- Head: the cross-eyed church
Christian Quotation of the DayAugust 26, 2005
In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Grecian Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, "It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word."
-- Acts 6:1-4 (NIV)
The Church on earth is a cross-eyed church, with one eye on God in His heavenly benediction, and one eye on the needy world of men.
... David Head, Shout for Joy, p. 108 
Quiet time reflection:
Am I failing to see the needs of those around me through concentrating on my own spirituality?
