Barth: confidence in God alone

Monday, February 28, 2011
Have no fear of sudden disaster
    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the LORD will be your confidence
    and will keep your foot from being snared.
    —Proverbs 3:25-26 (NIV)
    Religion is the possibility of the removal of every ground of confidence except confidence in God alone.
    ... Karl Barth (1886-1968), The Epistle to the Romans, translated from the 6th edition by Edwyn C. Hoskyns, London: Oxford University Press, H. Milford, 1933, 6th ed., Oxford University Press US, 1968, p. 88 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have shown me the foolishness of trusting anything apart from You.
