CQOD: 01/23/08 -- Brooks: trials

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 23, 2008
Commemoration of Phillips Brooks, Bishop of Massachusetts, spiritual writer, 1893
    As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him -- you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
    -- 1 Peter 2:4,5 (NIV)

    Wherever souls are being tried and ripened, in whatever commonplace and homely way, there God is hewing out the pillars for his temple.
    ... Phillips Brooks (1835-1893), “The Pillar in God's Temple,” from The Candle of the Lord, E. P Dutton & Co., New York, 1881, p. 72

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me from doubt in times of difficulty.
