Grou: intention and service

Sunday, July 16, 2017
    Commemoration of Osmund, Bishop of Salisbury, 1099
    Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
    —1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
    It is quite possible to perform very ordinary actions with so high an intention, as to serve God therein better than in far more important things done with a less pure intention.
    ... Jean Nicolas Grou (1731-1803), The Hidden Life of the Soul, London: Rivingtons, 1870, p. 3 (see the book)
    See also 1 Tim. 4:12; Rom. 12:18; Phil. 4:8; 2 Tim. 2:22; 2 Pet. 1:5-8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, let me not forget the small things that are great in Your Kingdom.
