CQOD: 04/02/06 -- Neill: the dwelling of virtue

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 2, 2006
    [Jesus:] "The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!"
    -- Matthew 6:22-23 (ESV)

    The will directs the tongue or the hand to act, and the evil word is spoken, or the evil deed done. Every time we sin, it is the whole of us that sins, and not just a part. The body is only the instrument of the mind and the will. All that God made, including the body with all its desires and instincts, is good in itself. But it has to be kept under control and used in the right way.
    ... Stephen Neill (1900-1984), The Christian Character [1955]

Quiet time reflection:
    Teach me, Lord, to abide in Your statutes.
