CQOD: 01/22/06 -- Hammarskjöld: the everyday commitment

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 22, 2006
    Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us.
    -- Philippians 3:17 (ESV)

    The “great commitment” is so much easier than the ordinary, everyday one—and can all too easily shut our hearts to the latter. A willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice can be associated with, and even produce, a great hardness of heart.
    ... Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961), Markings, p. 131 [1964]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, open my eyes to the small services You call me to do.
