CQOD: 10/19/05 -- Law: weakness

Christian Quotation of the Day

October 19, 2005
Feast of Henry Martyn, Translator of the Scriptures, Missionary in India & Persia, 1812
    When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
    -- Mark 10:14-15 (NIV)

    Weak and imperfect men shall, notwithstanding their frailties and effects, be received as having pleased God, if they have done their utmost to please Him.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life [1728]

Quiet time reflection:
    Am I constantly trying to prove myself?
