Griffith: commitment

Thursday, October 25, 2012
    Commemoration of Crispin & Crispinian, Martyrs at Rome, c.285
    So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
    —1 Peter 4:19 (NIV)
    In religion, we are not asked to make up our minds, we are asked to make up our lives... We may refuse to make up our minds, but our lives get made up, one way or the other... Whatever we believe with our minds, our lives are committed either to God’s way or to the God-denying way, and what matters in religion is the act of commitment.
    ... A. Leonard Griffith (b. 1920), Barriers to Christian Belief, New York: Harper & Row, 1962, London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1962, p. 190-192 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I choose Your ways consistently.
