CQOD: 01/14/06 -- Lawrence: to know God more

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 14, 2006
Commemoration of Richard Meux Benson, Founder of the Society of St John the Evangelist, 1915
    O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
    -- Romans 11:33 (KJV)

    Let all our employment be to know God; the more one knows Him, the more one desires to know Him. And as knowledge is commonly the measure of love, the deeper and more extensive our knowledge shall be, the greater will be our love; and if our love of God were great we should love Him equally in pains and pleasures.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I waste my time on useless knowledge. Incline me toward knowledge of You.
