Weil: worthwhile science

Thursday, August 17, 2017
    [Jesus] said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time?”
    —Luke 12:54-56 (NIV)
    A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
    ... Simone Weil (1909-1943), Gravity and Grace, Arthur Wills, tr., Lincoln: U of Nebraska Press, 1997, p. 105 (see the book)
    See also Luke 12:54-56; Matt. 11:25; 16:3; 24:32-33; 1 Cor. 8:1-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, bring me closer to You.
