CQOD: 08/18/06 -- Selden: giving to God

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 18, 2006
    The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof. Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne. A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled. The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
    -- Psalms 97:1-6 (KJV)

    All things are God’s already; we can give him no right, by consecrating any, that he had not before, only we set it apart to his service—just as a gardener brings his master a basket of apricots, and presents them; his lord thanks him, and perhaps gives him something for his pains, and yet the apricots were as much his lord’s before as now.
    ... John Selden (1584-1654), Table-Talk [1689]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You own everything. All my possessions are at Your disposal for the Gospel.
