CQOD: 07/28/07 -- Pascal: piety vs. goodness

Christian Quotation of the Day

July 28, 2007
Commemoration of Johann Sebastian Bach, musician, 1750
    When Jesus had finished speaking, a Pharisee invited him to eat with him; so he went in and reclined at the table. But the Pharisee, noticing that Jesus did not first wash before the meal, was surprised. Then the Lord said to him, "Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness. You foolish people! Did not the one who made the outside make the inside also? But give what is inside the dish to the poor, and everything will be clean for you.
    -- Luke 11:37-41 (NIV)

    Experience makes us see an enormous difference between piety and goodness.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, remove all that is false in me.
