CQOD: 11/09/07 -- Augustine on the will

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 9, 2007
Commemoration of Margery Kempe, Mystic, after 1433
    [Jesus] went on: "What comes out of a man is what makes him 'unclean.' For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man 'unclean.'"
    -- Mark 7:20-23 (NIV)

    One can say: “I will, but my body does not obey me;” but not: “My will does not obey me.”
    ... St. Augustine (354-430)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I am broken. Make me well, that I may sin no more.
