Underhill: the interior life

Tuesday, March 9, 2021
    Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
    —Philippians 4:5 (NIV)
    By the quality of our inner lives I do not mean something characterized by ferocious intensity and strain. I mean rather such a humble and genial devotedness as we find in the most loving of the saints. I mean the quality which makes contagious Christians, makes people catch the love of God from you.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), Concerning the Inner Life, London: Methuen, 1927, p. 12 (see the book)
    See also Phil. 4:5; Matt. 5:16; John 15:9-10; Col. 3:12; 1 John 4:12; 1 Pet. 3:15-16; Jude 1:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may show forth Your love.
