CQOD: 03/18/06 -- Guinness: success and failure

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 18, 2006
    For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
    -- 2 Corinthians 12:10 (ESV)

    On the one hand, in matters of the spirit, nothing fails like success. On the other hand, in matters of the spirit, nothing succeeds like failure.
    ... Os Guinness (b.1941), Dining with the Devil: the Megachurch Movement Flirts with Modernity [1993], p.89

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me from glorying in success and despairing in failure, that Your grace and glory may shine through all.
