CQOD: 04/08/06 -- Tillotson on God's judgements

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 8, 2006
Commemoration of William Augustus Muhlenberg of New York, Priest, 1877
    The Lord is at your right hand;
        he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.
    He will execute judgment among the nations,
        filling them with corpses;
        over the wide earth.
    -- Psalm 110:5-6

    If, when God sends judgments upon others, we do not take warning and example by them; if instead of reflecting upon ourselves and questioning our ways we fall to censuring others; if we will pervert the meaning of God’s providences and will not understand the design and intention of them; then we leave God no other way to awaken us to a consideration of our evil ways but by pouring down his wrath upon our heads, so that he may convince us that we are sinners by the same argument from whence we have concluded others to be so.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have my attention.
