Williams: contrition

Monday, May 15, 2017
    Commemoration of Charles Williams, Spiritual Writer, 1945
    [Jesus:] “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.”
    —Matthew 23:2-3 (NIV)
    [Every] contrition for sin is apt to encourage a not quite charitable wish that other people should exhibit a similar contrition.
    ... Charles Williams (1886-1945), The Descent of the Dove: a history of the Holy Spirit in the church, Meridian Books, 1956, p. 86-87 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 23:2-12; 6:1-8; 7:1; Rom. 2:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fill me with Your Spirit; otherwise I am defeated by pride.
