CQOD: 08/30/06 -- Underhill: a harmless exercise

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 30, 2006
    Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
    -- Psalm 34:13 (ESV)

    As to deliberate mortifications—I take it you do feel satisfied that you accept fully those God sends. That being so, you might perhaps do one or two little things, as acts of love, and also as discipline. I suggest by preference the mortification of the tongue—as being very tiresome and quite harmless to the health. Careful guard on all amusing criticisms of others, on all complaints however casual or trivial.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, bridle my errant tongue, for the sake of the Gospel.
