Hammarskjold: listening?

Monday, April 13, 2015
Yet I am always with you;
    you hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will take me into glory.
    —Psalm 73:23-24 (NIV)
    How can you expect to keep your powers of hearing when you never want to listen? That God should have time for you, you seem to take as much for granted as that you cannot have time for Him.
    ... Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961), Markings, tr. Leif Sjöberg & W. H. Auden, (q.v.), New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964 (post.), p.12 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 37:7; 73:23-24; Hab. 2:1; John 1:1-2; Eph. 2:17; Heb. 12:25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me to be patient like You.
