CQOD: 09/12/06 -- Allshorn: shallow comfort

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 12, 2006
    On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'"
    -- John 7:37-38 (ESV)

    We religious leaders need to look very much more deeply. We can so easily have talks with people, and they can say we have helped, write us grateful letters, even stand steady for a time till the juice we have put into them runs out; but, we may have brought them no hunger for God—because that hunger is no ache in our own heart—nor brought them anywhere near to the end of self.
    ... Florence Allshorn (1887-1950), Notebooks [1957]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to point others to the Livnig Bread and the Living Water.
