CQOD: 01/30/07 -- Hammarskjöld: life from God

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 30, 2007
    [God] made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for 'In him we live and move and have our being'; as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we are indeed his offspring.'
    -- Acts 17:26-28 (ESV)

    God does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illuminated by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder the source of which is beyond all reason.
    ... Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961), Markings, p. 56 [1964]

Quiet time reflection:
    My only source of life is You, Lord.
