CQOD: 03/24/06 -- Carlyle: the terms of the call

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 24, 2006
Feast of Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador, Martyr, 1980Commemoration of Paul Couturier, Priest, Ecumenist, 1953
    And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, "Come over to Macedonia and help us." And when Paul[a] had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.
    -- Acts 16:9-10 (ESV)

    Supply-and-demand,—alas! For what noble work was there ever yet any audible demand in that poor sense? The man of Macedonia, speaking in vision to the Apostle Paul, “Come over and help us,” did not specify what rate of wages he would give.
    ... Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)

Quiet time reflection:
    May I give the Gospel as freely as I received it.
