CQOD: 01/24/06 -- de Sales: devotion to our calling

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 24, 2006
Feast of François de Sales, Bishop of Geneva, Teacher, 1622
    For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
    -- Romans 12:4-8 (ESV)

    Our business is to love what God would have us do. He wills our vocation as it is: let us love that, and not trifle away our time in hankering after other people’s vocation.
    ... François de Sales (1567-1622)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me peace about my calling, and teach me to trust you in the calling of others.
