CQOD: 06/27/06 -- Tauler: the only safety

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 27, 2006
    In you, O LORD, do I take refuge;
        let me never be put to shame!
    In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
        incline your ear to me, and save me!
    Be to me a rock of refuge,
        to which I may continually come;
    you have given the command to save me,
        for you are my rock and my fortress.
    -- Psalms 71:1-3 (ESV)

    If thou desirest to be safe, turn at once in thy emptiness to God. If thou hast been inconsistent, how canst thou better become consistent again than in God only? How canst thou better escape death than by the true, real Life—which is God Himself?
    ... Johannes Tauler (ca. 1300-1361)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are my Rock.
