    If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city.
    -- Hebrews 11:15-16 (ESV)

    Social enthusiasms have such power today, they raise people so effectively to the supreme degree of heroism in suffering and death, that I think it is as well that a few sheep should remain outside the fold in order to bear witness that the love of Christ is essentially something different.
    ... Simone Weil (1909-1943), Waiting on God [1951]

Quiet time reflection:
    Take my eyes off the world's affairs, Lord, so that they might focus on the Kingdom.
