CQOD: 10/13/07 -- Newton: patience in affliction

Christian Quotation of the Day

October 13, 2007
Feast of Edward the Confessor, 1066
    But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment. When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world.
    -- 1 Corinthians 11:31,32 (NIV)

    The Lord afflicts us at times; but it is always a thousand times less than we deserve, and much less than many of our fellow-creatures are suffering around us. Let us therefore pray for grace to be humble, thankful, and patient.
    ... John Newton (1725-1807)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in my trials, You are always present.
