Yancey: marking time?

Sunday, November 18, 2012
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
    shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
    —Proverbs 4:18 (NIV)
    The people of God are not merely to mark time, waiting for God to step in and set right all that is wrong. Rather, they are to model the new heaven and new earth, and by so doing awaken longings for what God will someday bring to pass.
    ... Philip Yancey (b. 1949), Disappointment with God: Three Questions No One Asks Aloud, p. 237 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made Your people show forth the kingdom.
