Babcock: eternity now

Thursday, November 24, 2011
    Thanksgiving (U.S.)
God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
    —Psalm 46:1 (NIV)
    No clocks keep time tomorrow. Springs push and hands point now. Now is the appointed time for clocks as well as people. God never helped anyone tomorrow. He is a very present help. What is eternity, but God’s now? Let us then live the eternal life with God now.
    ... Maltbie D. Babcock (1858-1901), Thoughts for Every-day Living, New York: C. Scribner’s sons, 1901, p. 44-45 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, forgive me for ignoring Your constant presence.
