CQOD: 08/25/06 -- Thomas à Kempis: temporal vs. eternal

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 25, 2006
Commemoration of John Owen, spiritual writer, 1683
    Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
    -- Matthew 19:21-22 (ESV)

    For a small reward, a man will hurry away on a long journey; while for eternal life, many will hardly take a single step.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ, III.iii.

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, admonish my lethargy. Grant that I may be energetic on the causes of the Kingdom.
