CQOD: 11/04/05 -- Knight: the struggle within

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 4, 2005
    So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man.
    -- Acts 24:16 (NIV)

    Before I can have any joy in being alone with God I must have learned not to fear being alone with myself. Shrinking from any deep self-scrutiny is by no means an uncommon thing, and often goes far to explain the feverish restlessness with which a world-loving heart plunges into perpetual rounds of gaieties and dissipations; they serve as an escape from troublesome questions about the soul, and help to get rid of the clamors of conscience.
    ... G. H. Knight (1835-1917), In the Secret of His Presence [1934]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, set my conscience burning about my offenses towards You.
