MacDonald: the only good

Friday, June 30, 2023
They feast on the abundance of your house;
    you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
    in your light we see light.
    —Psalm 36:8-9 (NIV)
    I believe that there is nothing good for me or for any man but God, and more and more of God, and that alone through knowing Christ can we come nigh to him.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “Justice”, in Unspoken Sermons, Third Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1889, p. 154 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 36:8-9; 42:1-2; 63:1-2; 84:2; 143:6; Isa. 26:9; Jer. 17:13; John 4:13-14; 7:37-38; 14:9; Rev. 21:6; 22:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people desire Your Son.
