CQOD: 03/09/06 -- de Sales: patience

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 9, 2006
    Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me."
    -- Romans 15:2-3 (ESV)

    A really patient servant of God is as ready to bear inglorious troubles as those which are honorable. A brave man can easily bear with contempt, slander, and false accusations from an evil world; but to bear such injustice at the hands of good men, of friends and relations, is a great test of patience.
    ... Fran├žois de Sales (1567-1622)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I fail in patience. Send Your Spirit to instruct me.
