CQOD: 11/18/07 -- Hall: how to count your life

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 18, 2007
    Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
    -- 1 Thessalonians 5:1,2 (NIV)

    Every day is a little life: and our whole life is but a day repeated, whence it is that old Jacob numbers his life by days; and Moses desires to be taught this point of holy arithmetic, to number not his years but his days. [And so, those] that dare lose a day, are dangerously prodigal; those that dare misspend it, desperate.
    ... Bp. Joseph Hall (1574-1656)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, every day with You is blessed.
