Pascal: two kinds of reasonable people

Friday, March 27, 2015
    Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the LORD’s anger.
    —Zephaniah 2:3 (NIV)
    There are two kinds of people one can call reasonable; those who serve God with all their heart because they know Him, and those who seek Him with all their heart because they do not know Him.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées (Thoughts) [1660], P.F. Collier & Son, 1910, #194, p. 75 (see the book)
    See also Amos 5:14; Zeph. 2:3; Matt. 5:6; 6:33; 7:7-8; Luke 11:9-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made Yourself known to me.
