Carmichael: unkindness

Saturday, January 18, 2014
    Commemoration of Amy Carmichael, Founder of the Dohnavur Fellowship, 1951
    Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
    —Ephesians 5:1-2 (NIV)
    If I can write an unkind letter, speak an unkind word, think an unkind thought without grief and shame, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK, 1961, p. 9 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 5:1-2; Matt. 27:28-31; Luke 23:34; Rom. 15:1-2; Gal. 6:2; Col. 3:12; 2 Pet. 1:5-7; 1 John 2:10-11; 3:17-18; 4:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, purge my thoughts of what offends.
