CQOD: 08/27/06 -- Wilson: deeds, not words

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 27, 2006
Feast of Monica, Mother of Augustine of Hippo, 387
    ... for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
    -- Ephesians 5:8-10 (ESV)

    Christianity is pre-eminently the religion of the heart. It does not always ask words, but it always wants work. The motives and not the means are the things on which it passes judgment. And the man who shows by his life that he is not ashamed of the Gospel will assuredly one day find that the Gospel is not ashamed of him. There is much more which might be said, but I refrain. Ere I close, you will let me add my emphasis to the fact that it is in our life and conduct that we must show our devotion to Christ. The silent Gospel reaches further than the grandest rhetoric.
    ... Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may You demonstrate Your light in my life.
