Thursday, December 13, 2012
    Feast of Lucy, Martyr at Syracuse, 304
    Commemoration of Samuel Johnson, Writer, Moralist, 1784
    But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.
    —1 Peter 2:20 (NIV)
    It is better to suffer wrong than to do it, and happier to be sometimes cheated than not to trust.
    ... Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), from The Rambler, #79, Dec. 18, 1750, The Works of Samuel Johnson, L. L. D., v. V, New York: William Durell, 1811, p. 66 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a trusting spirit.
