Tauler: listening and learning

Monday, September 1, 2014
    Commemoration of Giles of Provence, Hermit, c.710
    Then [Jesus] returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”
    —Matthew 26:40-41 (NIV)
    If ye keep watch over your hearts, and listen for the Voice of God and learn of Him, in one short hour ye can learn more from Him than ye could learn from Man in a thousand years.
    ... Johannes Tauler (ca. 1300-1361), The Inner Way, Sermon XV (see the book)
    See also Matt. 26:40-41; Ps. 19:14; 104:34; Mark 13:33-37; Eph. 1:13-14; Heb. 13:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me listening to You.
