Augustine: iniquity

Monday, August 28, 2023
    Feast of Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, Teacher, 430
    “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”
    —John 4:34 (NIV)
    I inquired what iniquity was, and found it to be no substance, but the perversion of the will, turned aside from Thee, O God, the Supreme, towards these lower things.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Confessions [397], Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1886, VII.xvi, p. 162 (see the book)
    See also John 4:34; Ps. 32:2; 36:1-3; 125:4-5; 141:4; Matt. 6:10; Mark 3:35; John 6:38-40; Rom. 12:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep my eyes on Your will alone in my life.
