Law: the world a hospital

Saturday, July 28, 2012
    Commemoration of Johann Sebastian Bach, musician, 1750
Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed;
    save me and I will be saved,
    for you are the one I praise.
    —Jeremiah 17:14 (NIV)
    The most sober Reason thus acquainted with the nature of our fall, must be forced to consider this world as having merely the nature of an hospital, where people only are, because they are distempered, and where no happiness is sought for, but that of being healed, and made fit to leave it.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), Christian Regeneration [1739], in Works of Rev. William Law, v. V, London: G. Moreton, 1893, p. 18 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your healing power has touched me.
