Carmichael: unkindness

Thursday, January 18, 2024
    Feast of the Confession of Saint Peter the Apostle
    Commemoration of Amy Carmichael, Founder of the Dohnavur Fellowship, 1951
    Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
    —Ephesians 5:1-2 (NIV)
    If I can write an unkind letter, speak an unkind word, think an unkind thought without grief and shame, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK, 1961, p. 9 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 5:1-2; Matt. 27:28-31; Luke 23:34; Rom. 15:1-2; Gal. 6:2; Col. 3:12; 2 Pet. 1:5-7; 1 John 2:10-11; 3:17-18; 4:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, purge my thoughts of what offends.
