Fenelon: God's love
Feast of William Tyndale, Translator of the Scriptures, Martyr, 1536
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?
—Hebrews 12:7 (NIV)
God never strikes but in love, nor takes away save to give again. I pray Him to comfort you, to preserve your health, and to turn your heart wholly to Himself. Blessed is he who lives in faith, trusts to none save God, and uses this world as though he were already beyond it.
... François Fénelon (1651-1715), Spiritual Letters of Archbishop Fénelon. Letters to men, London: Rivingtons, 1877, p. 259 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, grant me the faith to endure.
