CQOD: 12/02/05 -- Brother Lawrence: seeing troubles rightly

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 2, 2005
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
    -- Romans 8:18 (ESV)

    The sorest afflictions never appear intolerable, but when we see them in the wrong light: when we see them in the hand of God, Who dispenses them; when we know that it is our loving Father who abases and distresses us; our sufferings will lose their bitterness and become even a matter of consolation.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691)

Quiet time reflection:
    Send your grace, Lord, so that I might always have Your perspective on my troubles.
