CQOD: 05/29/06 -- Jowett: the higher standard

Christian Quotation of the Day

May 29, 2006
    Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
        for in you I trust.
    Make me know the way I should go,
        for to you I lift up my soul.
    -- Psalm 143:8 (ESV)

    One use of prayer is to maintain in us a higher standard and prevent our principles insensibly sinking to our practice, or to the practice of the world around us.
    ... Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I listen in prayer for Your word to me.
