Law: pleasing God

Sunday, September 10, 2023
“Sacrifice thank offerings to God,
    fulfill your vows to the Most High,
and call upon me in the day of trouble;
    I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
    —Psalm 50:14-15 (NIV)
    We can please God in no state or employment of life, but by intending and devoting it all to His honour and glory.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life [1728], London: Methuen, 1899, p. 46 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 50:14-15; 1 Sam.15:22; Pr. 21:3; Jer. 22:15-16; Hos. 6:6; John 15:8; 1 Pet. 4:11; 1 John 2:3
Quiet time reflection:
    May my actions give honor to Your name, Lord.
